Armed Robber Hides in Business

The Sacramento Police Department is hoping someone can identify an armed robbery suspect who held employees at gunpoint. 

 On February 3, 2010, at 10:39 p.m., employees of a book store, located in the1700 block of Arden Way, were preparing to close.  The suspect hid inside the store until after closing time.  He then came out armed with a gun and demanded money.  He directed the employees into the manager's office, grabbing one of them and again demanded money.  The suspect was given some money and fled out to his parked vehicle. 

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, possibly in his 40's, 5'7", 170-190 lbs, athletic build, light complexion, and black short hair that is combed back.  The suspect vehicle is a silver Toyota, possibly a 4-door Camry. 

 The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
