San Francisco, CA – Today, San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins announced that Favian Gonzales-Vancorner (19) of San Francisco and Ana Reyes (19), of San Francisco, have been charged with multiple felonies in connection with an armed robbery in the Mission District. Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner’s charges include second-degree robbery (PC 211), possession of a deadly weapon, specifically a short-barreled rifle or shotgun (PC 33215), possession of an assault weapon (PC 30605(a)) and possession of a large-capacity magazine (PC 32310(c)). The criminal complaint also alleges that Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner personally used a firearm (PC 12022.53(b)).  In addition, both Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes are charged with possession of a concealed firearm not registered to themselves inside of a vehicle (PC 25400(a)) and carrying a loaded firearm not registered to themselves (PC 25850(a)). The criminal complaint also alleges that Ms. Reyes committed these crimes while on bail and released on her own recognizance (PC 12022.1(b)).

Both Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes were arraigned on June 26, 2024, and each pleaded not guilty to all charges.  The District Attorney’s Office moved to detain both pending trial because of the public safety risk they pose.  The court set no bail for Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and released Ms. Reyes on her own recognizance.  As a condition of her release, she is ordered to possess no weapons.

“I would like to thank the San Francisco Police Department for making an arrest in this case,” said District Attorney Brooke Jenkins.  “My office will continue to do everything we can to support our neighborhoods and small businesses who are under siege from brazen thieves who feel as if they have the right to take what they want with impunity.  They are mistaken.  They will be identified, arrested and prosecuted.”

According to court records, on June 21, 2024, at 9:35 PM, Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes went into a liquor store on the 1200 block of Valencia Street and allegedly attempted to buy alcohol. Both Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes were unable to provide a valid ID to the store clerk. After being refused, both defendants left the store. Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner allegedly returned to the store later and took several packs of mixed drinks without paying. When the clerk tried to stop him, Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner allegedly reached into a pocket and partially pulled out a semi-automatic firearm and told the clerk to let him out.  Fearing for his life, the clerk allowed Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner to leave with the merchandise.  On June 23, 2024, SFPD officers arrested Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes after recognizing the defendants in a car.  During the arrest officers seized a loaded ghost gun (semi-automatic pistol) from Ms. Reyes’s purse.

The next court date for Mr. Gonzales-Vancorner and Ms. Reyes is set for July 10, 2024, for the preliminary hearing in this matter.

Although charges have been filed, this remains an active investigation.  Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department Tip Line at 1-415-575-4444 or Text a Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.  You may remain anonymous.
