Angeles: LAPD Detectives are asking for the public’s help in
locating two suspects, who posed as vendors and robbed a Vons

On September 3, 2008 at about 6 a.m., two suspects, wearing Pepsi
vendor shirts, entered the Vons Market located at the 9800 block of
National Boulevard in West Los Angeles. The suspects walked to the
employee lunch room on the second floor. When a store employee
opened the accounting office, the suspects forced the employee into
the office and ordered her to lie on the floor. The suspects used

removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe.
