McDonald’s manager orders up robbery plea deal
July 19, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Felix Gonzalez-Becerra

A McDonald’s manager accused of robbing two of the fast-food franchises, including his own in Pleasanton, pleaded no contest in a San Mateo incident where he forced the employees of the restaurant into a freezer at gunpoint before making off with some cash.

Take a plea deal leaves Felix Jeronimo Gonzalez-Becerra, 42, looking at a seven-year sentence rather than a potential life term if convicted by a jury of the charges which included kidnapping. Instead, the Oakland man pleaded no contest to one count of kidnapping and three counts of robbery. He will be formally sentenced Aug. 19.

In the San Mateo robbery, a man later identified as Gonzalez-Becerra entered the McDonald’s in the Laurelwood Shopping Center on the 1200 block of West Hillsdale Boulevard the night of Sept. 2, 2013. The masked and gloved man pointed what turned out to be a replica handgun at the workers and forced them into the freezer while another opened the safe. He made off with an undisclosed amount of money but was apprehended when police officers responding to a broadcast description stopped his vehicle as it crossed the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge.

After his arrest, authorities tied him to an Aug. 28, 2013, robbery of a McDonald’s in Pleasanton that Gonzalez-Becerra managed. He is being prosecuted for that crime by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office.

Gonzalez-Becerra remains in custody without bail.
