SAN ANDREAS — A man was arrested in Fresno on Wednesday in connection with a marijuana robbery that occurred last month in San Andreas, authorities said.
Detectives from the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office identified Alexander Concepcion as the suspect in an Aug. 28 robbery in the 3000 block of Central Hill Road in San Andreas, Sgt. Anthony Eberhardt said. Investigators said marijuana plants were stolen during the robbery.

The Sheriff’s Office said Concepcion will be extradited to Calaveras County at a later date to face charges for the robbery in San Andreas.

The motorcyclist, an unidentified 24-year-old San Jose man, was traveling south on Jesus Maria Road near Railroad Flat Road on a 2001 Suzuki about 12:30 p.m., the California Highway Patrol said.
