Wal-Mart Robbery Suspects Caught on Surveillance Video

Los Angeles: Robbery Homicide Division (RHD) detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating three suspects who robbed a Los Angeles area Wal-Mart store. All suspects were captured on the store’s video surveillance system.

On August 03, 2008, at 11:25 p.m., the night manager of Wal-Mart on 19503 S. Normandie Avenue unlocked the door to allow the night crew to enter the store. He noticed two suspects dressed as Wal-Mart employees, who claimed to have transferred from another store. When the manager refused to allow them entry, one of them pulled out a gun and ordered the manager to take them to the back of the store where the safe was located. A third man remained at the entrance. The suspects proceeded to rob the store of an undisclosed amount of cash and left in a van waiting for them.

The suspects are described as three Black men between 20 to 25 years old. They are medium built with very short dark hair. Two of the suspects have dark complections and one has a lighter complection. The suspects stand 5’7, 6’ and 6’2 tall wearing clothing similar to those worn by Wal-Mart employees.

The van was described as a maroon, late 1990’s to 2000 model Ford Winstar or Chevrolet Astro passenger van with collision damage to the right rear side and tinted windows behind the front row seats.

Surveillance video is available through Media Relations at 213-485-3586.

Anyone with information regarding this robbery is urged to call RHD Detectives Maria Tomes or Freddy Arroyo at 213-485-2511. After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855). Callers may remain anonymous.
