7-Eleven, CVS, and Three Liquor Stores Robbed

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public's help in nabbing two bandits whose images were caught on surveillance video robbing five businesses including three liquor stores in the Reseda and Van Nuys area.  The robberies have occurred since December 19, 2008.

In each incident, two men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered the store posing as customers.  One of the suspects stepped up to the counter and asked to make a purchase.  When the store clerk opened the cash register to make change for the purchase, the other suspect approached the counter and brandished a handgun.  The pair demanded cash, and in one case, grabbed money from the cash drawer.   Prior to leaving the liquor store, the suspects demanded premium liquor such as Patron Silver tequila or Remy Martin cognac.  Afterwards, they took off in an unidentified white vehicle with an undetermined amount of cash, detectives said.  

The suspect who displayed the handgun was described as a male Black in his early 20s, about 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds.  He was last seen wearing a dark gray or navy blue hooded jacket and dark pants.



The second suspect used bodily force was also described as a male Black in his early 20s.  He stood 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 10 inches tall with a goatee, and weighed 170 pounds.  He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt or a tan hooded jacket, a white long sleeve crew neck shirt and dark pants.  Police consider the suspects armed and dangerous.

No one was injured during the incident.

The following businesses have been robbed:

•December 19, 2008 – 2:45 a.m., 7-Eleven, 17710 Saticoy Street
•December 24, 2008 – 10:40 p.m., CVS Pharmacy, 23357 Mulholland Drive

•January 12, 2009 – 9:30 p.m., Liquor Bank, 16925 Vanowen Street

Anyone with information or who knows the whereabouts of these suspects is urged to call West Valley robbery detectives at 818-374-7730.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7(527-3247).  Callers may also text "CRIMES" with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web Tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with "LAPD."  All calls and contacts are anonymous.
