Man Arrested for Robbing Two Santa Monica Adult Toy Shops

Kelly Blake Carr arrested in connection to robberies at Adult Love Boutique and Secret Desires

Charges have been filed against a man for robbing two Santa Monica adult toy stores. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on December 3 around 4:30 p.m., officers responded to an armed robbery at Adult Love Boutique, located at 1319 Santa Monica Boulevard. The employee told police the suspect was armed with a handgun and stole US Currency before he fled. 

“Officers arrived in less than two minutes and noticed a male changing his clothing near the crime scene and attempted to detain him. The male, later identified as Kelly B. Carr, disobeyed the officers’ commands, and fled on his bicycle,” the SMPD said. 

Officers gave chase and eventually detained Carr in the BMW dealership parking lot at 12th Street and Santa Monica Boulevard. While he was fleeing from officers, Carr discarded his backpack and the replica handgun used in the commission of the robbery, however, those items were recovered. Officers also located the stolen cash and a clear plastic baggie containing a white crystalline substance resembling methamphetamine in Carr’s possession. 

“During the detention, Carr admitted to the crime and during a field show-up the employee and witness both positively identified him as the suspect,” the SMPD said. 

Carr was booked for robbery, delaying arrest and possession of methamphetamine. Officers also discovered Carr had a warrant out of Desoto Parish Sheriff’s County for burglary as well as an out-of-state warrant for possession of cocaine. 

SMPD Detectives were able to link Carr to an incident that occurred on October 16, 2022, when Carr entered Secret Desires at 2432 Lincoln Boulevard, selected items then walked to the register before producing a handgun, and demanding money. Carr then fled on his bicycle before the police arrived. 

Detectives believe that Carr may be responsible for other robberies in the area that may lead to additional charges. Anyone with any additional information pertaining to these incidents or suspect is encouraged to contact Detective I. Tavera at 310-458-2201 ext. 2256 or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8426.
