Rainbow man arrested after Temecula Dairy Queen robbery

TEMECULA - Sheriff's deputies arrested a man suspected of robbing a Dairy Queen in Temecula and unsuccessfully trying to rob two other businesses within an hour, a sergeant said Tues., Nov. 8.

Troy David Blake, 49, of Rainbow, was booked on suspicion of armed robbery and attempted armed and jailed in Murrieta in lieu of $25,000 bail, Sgt. Kevin McDonald said.

Authorities did not say how they tracked down Blake, who was arrested about 9 p.m. Monday, Nov. 7.

The holdup at the Dairy Queen in the 31800 block of Temecula Parkway was reported at 11:34 a.m. Sunday. The suspect, who appeared to be holding a handgun in a jacket pocket, demanded cash, got some and fled in red vehicle, sheriff's deputies said.

The same suspect later tried to rob the Angel View Boutique and Francesca's Italian Kitchen, also on Temecula Parkway, but was thwarted and left empty-handed, sheriff's deputies said.
