PD Duo Arrested in Fast Food Robberies

Police arrest two people in connection to five local robberies in past month.

A Palm Desert man and woman suspected in the armed robbery of five fast food restaurants in Bermuda Dunes, Indio and La Quinta were behind bars today.

Christopher Bryson, 22, and Zachsia Price, 20, were arrested by Indio
police detectives at a home in Palm Desert just after 4 p.m. Wednesday, said
Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron.

The latest robbery was Tuesday, when Bryson walked into the Subway sandwich shop at 43430 Monroe St. at 10:06 a.m. Tuesday, placed several items for purchase on the counter, then drew a handgun and ordered a clerk to hand over money from the cash register, Guitron said.

Bryson then fled with an undisclosed sum, he said.

Information gathered by Indio police detectives led them to contact Riverside County sheriff's investigators, who helped identify Bryson as the robbery suspect and trace him to a home in the 77700 block of Michigan Drive in Palm Desert, Guitron said.

Detectives took Bryson and Price into custody and later determined that
Price had also been involved in the robbery, he said.

Riverside County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Steve DaSilva says the two will each be charged with five counts of armed robbery.

The four other robberies took place at:

Bryson was being held on $100,000 bail, while Price's bail was set at $25,000, according to sheriff's online booking records, which indicated that both were due in court in Indio Friday.

I agree the world has gone crazy, and so have some people. You have NO right to judge these two people. You are not GOD! HE is the only one that can judge any of us. Think about if this were your child and people were talking like that about them. How would you feel? I agree what they did was wrong, but they are someone's child and first and foremost they are one of GOD's children just like you!
Reginia Sam July 23, 2012 at 11:52 AM
Whoever Me is, all of us our not religious, so I guess we can judge.

these "children of god" are liars, cheater, scoundrals, low lifes, druggies, boozers, a whore, and a man whore, and meth heads by the look of their faces. Im religious and I find this disgusting. What if they put a gun to your childs face at their first job at Subway? I don't think you would quite as forgiving, I'm not judging, I know them both, and I know Dustin Durnford who also robbed houses with Chris.. I am all too familiar with these people.. Its vulgar for me to read your support for such individuals.. Must be your own child your defending, if so, I'm sorry, truly, I'd be embarrassed too.

Me, I think these two fools have made their own choice in life and right now God is not in it.Can't blame anyone for these meatheads they did it to themselfs. I am a parent and yes if my kid was like this I would have to take the slap in the face everytime these fools did something stupid.If these are your kids i would bet you have been slapped a lot. I will let God Judge them and I know exactly what he is going to say."No room at the inn for you two meatheads sorry"

There are a lot of kids who had crappy parents, but they still grow up to live normal, productive lives. These are adults and after a certain age you can't blame your parents anymore.
Reginia Sam August 28, 2012 at 05:44 AM
After a certain age, they should use their own brain.

You know I see all these mean cruel things being said about this couple. I happen to know them and they are good kids that made bad decisions due to an addiction. When you have the disease of being an addict nothing stops you from getting what you want. They have a disese and I hope they get the help they need and not locked up for making some bad choices.
