Late Saturday night, a man armed with a small handgun robbed another man in Keizer near the 800 block of Plymouth Drive NE. When the victim told the robber he didn't have any cash, the suspect forced him to cash a check so he could steal that money.
Keizer Police officers found the suspect's vehicle nearby and they found the suspect in one of the apartments. Several people were inside and questioned. Officers arrested Gustavo Balderas Jr. He's charged with Robbery, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Possession of Stolen Property (the gun he was carrying) and a warrant for Sexual Assault. He's being held on $110,000 bail.
