Second La Jolla Taco Shop Robbed at Gunpoint

This marks the second taco shop by the same name robbed at gunpoint within two weeks

A taco shop in La Jolla was robbed at gunpoint overnight, the San Diego Police Department confirmed.

Just before 1:30 a.m., police say two armed suspects dressed in dark clothing entered the back door of the Rigoberto’s Taco Shop located at 7345 La Jolla Boulevard.

Police say the suspects pointed guns at the heads of employees, and then fled with an unknown amount of cash. No one was injured.

The robbery is under investigation.

Just two weeks ago, another Rigoberto’s Taco Shop was robbed at gunpoint on the very same street, also by two armed suspects.

It is unknown if the two incidents are related. No suspects have been arrested in either robbery.
