Two people were arrested after a car wash was robbed in La Quinta on Wednesday night, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies from the Thermal Station were called out to a report of a commercial robbery at the Quick Quack Car Wash, located in the 43600 block of Washington Street, a sheriff’s news release stated.
