After reading a Berkeley Police Department alert about eight recent armed robberies in the lower hills, all involving a silver sportscar, a resident contacted BPD on October 15 to report seeing the car. At Virginia and Arch streets, where several of those robberies occurred, cops stopped the Mitsubishi Lancer. Its license plate matched that cited by the victim of one of the robberies. Its driver, 18-year-old Davon Vigay, had a loaded gun. He was arrested for three counts of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle, carrying a loaded stolen firearm, and possession of a firearm not registered to the possessor. "Without the collaborative efforts of our officers, detectives, and participatory members of the community this felon might still be at large," writes BPD Officer Andrew Frankel.
