Violent Takeover Robbery by Masked Gunmen NR10525pv

Los Angeles.  LAPD detectives released video today of a 3-man robbery crew who burst into a downtown resale business and robbed customers and employees, netting over $6,000 in cash.

“This was such a brazen robbery ,” said Lt. Paul Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division.  “Thankfully, no one was hurt, this time.”

Around 4:10 pm on October 29th, three Hispanic men burst through the cargo entrance of California Liquidators at 664 South Santa Fe Avenue. Armed with guns, one suspect wore a Halloween mask, while the other two covered their faces with dark hoodies.
 
The “The videotape clearly shows how the suspects shoved their guns into the faces of frightened customers and employees,” Lt. Vernon explained.  ”One customer, a woman, was actually kicked in the shoulder while she lay on the floor, even though she was obeying their commands."

The suspects backed a white or silver Toyota Camry into the loading area, behind the store, and they left the same way, just few minutes later.  No one was injured in the robbery.

“Typically, suspects will share information or brag about their exploits,” Lt. Vernon added.  “We’d like anyone with information to come forward and help us identify them.”  

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Detective Al Rasch, Central Robbery Unit, at 213-972-1245.  Anonymous tips can be called into Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477), or by texting 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Online tips may be placed at www.LAPDOnline.org, click on “webtips” and follow the prompts.

Video of the crime is also available for viewing at the Central Police Station.
