SUMMARY: On August 19, 2019, deputies from the Victorville Police Department were requested to respond to an armed robbery that had just occurred at the Sprint store on Bear Valley Road. The caller reported two armed men robbed the store and had fled.
Upon arrival, deputies learned an employee had just opened the store and was the only person inside when the suspects entered. They were both armed with guns and wearing blue mechanic type jumpsuits, baseball hats, and white dust masks to hide their faces. They demanded the employee open the safe and took multiple cell phones and smart watches, which they placed into a blue luggage bag. The suspects then bound the employee’s wrists with zip ties and fled the store. After they fled, the employee was able to cut the zip ties and call 911.
The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective S. Andersen at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
