Armed robbery reported
Police say a Martinez man was robbed at gunpoint Sept. 27 when an alleged drug deal went bad.
According to department records, Jayson DeWayne Wheatley, 21, was attempting to purchase a pound of marijuana for $750 from a black man at the 3900 block of Desoto Drive in Martinez when the incident occurred.
