Businesses Robbed at Gunpoint as Suspect Sought
The Placer County Sheriff's Office is asking the public's help in identifying the man who recently robbed two Loomis businesses at gunpoint.
The man, who is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall to 5 feet, 8 inches tall, is thought to be in his mid-20s. He is possibly Hispanic and may be associated with a white compact car, similar to a Saturn coupe.
The man robbed the Star Liquor Store on Taylor Road in Loomis on Wednesday, January 16, at 11:35 a.m. The clerk said he was wearing a black hoodie and a black knit cap, and used a handgun in the robbery. Two days later, Friday, January 18, a man matching the same description robbed the Valero gas station on Penryn Road in Penryn around noon. A handgun was also used in that robbery.
Anyone with information about this suspect or the robberies is urged to contact the Placer County Sheriff's Office at (530) 889-7800. To earn a cash reward of up to $1,000 and remain anonymous, please call Placer County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-923-8191 or report an anonymous tip online at www.placercrimestoppers.com.
