Trio of robberies bring five years prison for pair
March 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Miguel Alvarado

Osvaldo Lopez

Two Norteño gangmembers who committee three armed robberies of Redwood City convenience stores within three hours last May were each sentenced Thursday to five years in prison.

Miguel Gonzales Alvarado, 19, and Osvaldo Alonzo Lopez, 22, faced up to 12 years and 13 years in prison, respectively, after pleading no contest to three felony counts of robbery with a gang enhancement. Instead, each was sentenced to five-year terms, with credit of nearly a year, and ordered to register as a gangmember.

In each robbery, Lopez entered the stores with what appeared to be a rifle but was later identified as a BB gun and demanded money from clerks. Alvarado served as getaway driver and lookout in a stolen car. The stores robbed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. May 28, 2013, were the two 7-Elevens on Woodside Road and Broadway and the Food Stop on Whipple Avenue.
