ROCKLIN – Three women entered the Dollar Tree store at 6656 Lonetree Blvd. Monday night at about 9:21 pm, just before the store’s closing time, committed armed robbery and escaped before Rocklin police arrived.
According to a Rocklin PD press release, the first suspect was described as 40-ish dark skinned – possibly hispanic – woman, 5’10” to 6’0″ tall, about 200 pounds, with a tattoo of lips on her neck. She was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and carrying a silver hand gun. She initially grabbed a male store employee and pulled him to the ground while holding her gun on him.
Her two accomplices were described as a 30-ish white woman with dirty blonde hair, about 5’7″, 200 pounds, wearing a dark shirt and light blue jeans, and a 30-ish dark skinned woman, about 5’4″, 180 pounds, wearing dark baggy sweat clothes. These two held the male employee on the ground while the armed woman ordered another employee to open the cash register drawers, removing the cash. She then ordered both employees to the manager’s office and demanded more cash. The three then fled the store through the front doors. There was no information available about any vehicle they may have left in.
