Suspects Sought in Robbery Series
Sheriff's detectives are looking to identifying a group of suspects wanted in connection to a recent series of robberies during the last month. In each of the incidents, the suspects have been described as white or Hispanic males believed to be in their 20s. They wear black ski masks or hooded sweatshirts pulled tight around their faces.
This group of suspects is believed to be responsible for the following incidents:
* 01/31/13 - Robbery at Hoa Viet restaurant - 3110 Bradshaw Road
* 01/31/13 - Robbery at the Star of Sam Thai Food - 6029 Greenback Lane

* 02/04/13 - Carjacking - 100 block of Riverside Boulevard (Roseville)
* 02/04/13 - Robbery - Adalberto's Restaurant - 5544 Watt Avenue
On February 4, 2013, the vehicle taken in the carjacking, a 2012 grey Nissan Altima, was later used as the getaway vehicle in a robbery that same day. The suspects have been armed with black, semi-automatic handguns and a dark-colored revolver. One of the handguns has been described as having an extended magazine. The suspects enter the businesses, and target cash registers as well as personal property of employees and customers.
