Police Identify Second Suspect In Coin Store Robbery


Police have identified the second man who is suspected of robbing a coin store in Santa Rosa earlier this month.

Police previously identified Anthony Payne, 29, of Ontario as the man who allegedly fired a shot at an employee while fleeing the Big Oak Plaza Coin Store at 2490 W. Third St. after the robbery at about 9:20 p.m. July 14.

Santa Rosa police detectives learned Payne allegedly fled to Los Angeles in a Ford Focus, and Los Angeles police arrested him on July 16.

Payne was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and robbery, and was allegedly in possession of a loaded semi-automatic handgun that matched the description of the gun used in the robbery, police said.

Payne was convicted of a manslaughter that occurred in Guerneville in July 2011, and he is prohibited from using a firearm, police said.

Daniel Riley Quistgard, 25, a transient, is the second suspect in the robbery. Quistgard allegedly frequents the Coddingtown Mall area in Santa Rosa and the Guerneville area. He also is a suspect in a $17,000 burglary at a jewelry store Kiosk inside the mall on July 1, police said.

Quistgard also is suspected of stealing a tray of gold nuggets worth $3,000 from the Big Oak Plaza Coin Store on July 5.

Police described Quistgard as 25 to 35 years old, 6 feet tall, 170 pounds with short blond hair. Police said Quistgard has a tattoo “Joalice” on his chest, “Sonoma County” on his right arm, “$$” on his right forearm and a piercing on the right side of his face.

In the robbery on July 14, both men allegedly grabbed a tray of valuable coins from behind a counter. Two employees were in the store and a third was outside at the time of the robbery, according to police.

The employee outside the store confronted Quistgard who eventually threw away the tray of coins during a struggle and fled, police said.

Another store employee confronted Payne at the coin shop door and knocked the tray of coins from Payne’s hands. The store employee chased Payne and Payne allegedly fired a shot from a handgun at the employee while running away. Both men fled in a 2017 gray Ford Focus with Illinois license plates, police said.

There is a reward of up to $2,500 for the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
