SACRAMENTO – Police are asking for the public's help identifying two individuals caught on camera casing a Citrus Heights store and stealing welding equipment on October 10.
Officer Wesley Herman of the Citrus Heights Police Department said the two males entered Barnes Welding Supply at 6005 Auburn Blvd. around 12:45 p.m. They appeared to case the store for about 45 minutes. During that time, they exited and then reentered the store several times, going out to their car in the parking lot in between.
Eventually, one of the suspects entered the store alone while his accomplice waited in the car. The individual who entered the store, grabbed a Miller Electric TIG welding machine and ran out of the store without paying, Herman said.
The two individuals then fled southbound on Auburn Blvd. toward Manzanita Ave. in what appeared to be a newer model Toyota Sequoia SUV, according to Herman.
