Community Assistance Needed to Identify Robbery Suspects

The Sacramento Police Department is asking for the community's help in identifying a group of suspects wanted in the following robberies and burglary:

On June 28, 2012 at approximately 3:19 p.m. near 65th Street and 14th Avenue, a group of subjects committed a strong arm-robbery at a fireworks stand.

On June 28, 2012 at approximately 3:22 p.m. near 65th Street and Fruitridge Road, a group of subjects committed a second strong-arm robbery at a fireworks stand.

On June 29, 2012 at approximately 4:10 p.m. near I-80 and Truxel Road, a group of subjects committed a burglary at a local business.  The suspects loaded five 42" flat screen TVs into a cart, pushed the cart out a fire exit, and fled in an awaiting van. 

On July 13, 2012 at approximately 11:00 a.m. near Stockton Boulevard and 47th Avenue a woman was assaulted and robbed of her purse while walking to her car.

One suspect vehicle has been used in all four crimes.  The vehicle is a stolen, white, Dodge Caravan with a CA plate 4PTF462. That plate has most likely been replaced.  Information on the new partial license plate numbers are CA 6M_ _ _21. (Suspect vehicle pictured below.)

 The suspects were described in all four incidents as three or four black male adults, 18-25 years old, 5 feet, 6 inches to 6 feet, and weighing between170-220 pounds. One suspect had a shaved head and another had short dreadlocks. (Suspect pictured below.) 

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to these crimes to contact police dispatch at (916) 264-5471 or call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) 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 of up to $1,000.
