Today, Reginald Ford (39) of Los Angeles was sentenced to serve 60 years in state prison for the conviction of two 2012 armed robberies in Santa Monica. Ford was convicted by a jury in May 2014
On the morning of August 24, 2012, Ford approached a young woman in the Alley of the 800 block of 3rd Street. The victim was seated in her car preparing to go to work. Ford pointed at the woman what she believed to be a handgun and demanded her money, jewelry, and cell phone. He then fled on foot before the police arrived.
A second, similar incident occurred the morning of October 9, 2012 in the 500 block of San Vicente. A young woman was leaving her home to go to work when Ford walked up to her driver's side door and pointed at her what she believed to be a handgun. The young woman screamed and Ford fled on foot before the police arrived.
Ford was initially identified as a suspect in the second robbery by a fingerprint recovered on the door frame of the woman's vehicle. He was later positively identified by both victims during follow up investigation by the Santa Monica Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.
