COALINGA — On Sunday night, February 26th, eight people entered the Harris Ranch Country Store at 24505 W. Dorris Avenue.
The group consisted of four men and four women who arrived in two vehicles — a ’90s Dodge Caravan and a dark SUV.
The group then split up with an obvious plan in mind. Some of the group pretended to look at merchandise while others distracted the employee.
Two women went up the stairs and then crawled around on the floor of an office where they dug through an open safe and stole cash.
The duo tried to unlock another safe with a set of keys they found but were unsuccessful. They then crawled back out, went downstairs and the lookout group proceeded to leave with them.
Anyone with information on these suspects is asked to contact Detective Adrian Villegas at (559) 600-8171 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP (7867). All tips will remain anonymous and you may be eligible for a cash reward.
