SEEKING ASSISTANCE WITH IDENTIFYING ROBBERY SUSPECT
Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Robbery Detectives are seeking assistance from the public with identifying a robbery suspect. Detectives received the first robbery case in November of 2018 and during this intense investigation, have been able to connect the same suspect to at least five robberies to local businesses. All of these robberies have occurred in the 8000 block of Elk Grove Florin Road. The last robbery is believed to have occurred in February of 2019.
During each robbery, the suspect enters the business then confronts store employees while brandishing a handgun and demands money. In each robbery, the suspect keeps his face covered in an attempt to conceal his identity.
The suspect in this robbery series is described as a black or mixed race black/white male between 18-20 years old. The suspect is approximately 6’0” tall and 150 pounds with a thin build. After each robbery, the suspect flees the scene on foot.
Anyone knowing the identity of this suspect is urged to contact the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115 or Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers at (916) 443-HELP. Tip information may also be left anonymously at www.sacsheriff.com or by calling (916) 874-TIPS (8477). Tipsters may be eligible for a reward by providing information leading to the arrest of this suspect through Sacramento Valley Crime Stoppers.
