Armed robber hides inside bookstore

SACRAMENTO — Authorities are hoping someone can identify an armed robbery suspect who held bookstore employees at gunpoint last week just before closing.

At 10:39 p.m. on Feb. 3, employees were preparing to shut the doors of their business on the 1700 block of Arden Way. The suspect hid inside the store until after closing time. He then came out armed with a gun and demanded money. He directed the employees into the manager’s office, grabbing one of them and again demanding money. The suspect was given some money and fled out to his parked vehicle.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male possibly in his 40s, 5-7, 170 to 190 pounds with an athletic build, light complexion and short black hair that is combed back. The suspect vehicle is a silver Toyota, possibly a four-door Camry.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
