Video Game Store Robberies

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Robbery Detectives are investigating a series of evening robberies in the southern part of Sacramento County over the past ten days, involving video game stores. There are similarities in all five robberies which suggest that the robberies may be related. Three of the robberies occurred in the County, one in the City of Sacramento, and one in Elk Grove.

In each of the robberies, at least two suspects entered the store armed with a shotgun and demanded money from the store and customers. The suspects are described as either Black or Hispanic adults, from 18 to early 20’s, 5’9” to 6’1”, with one described as being 6’4”, all about 200 pounds.

Anyone with information regarding these suspects’ identities is urged to call Sheriff’s Detectives at (916) 874-5115 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.00. Additional reward money, up to $5,000, may also be available.
