Sacramento police seek help identifying three men accused of robbing a man of gift cards he had just purchased at a Home Depot store Wednesday afternoon in North Natomas.
Police said the three suspects, pictured in surveillance video, forcefully took a 64-year-old man’s shopping bag that contained several gift cards he had purchased at Home Depot in the 3600 block of Truxel Road about 3:14 p.m. The suspects are believed to have been near the man when he bought the gift cards and followed him into the parking lot, where they allegedly robbed him, according to a Police Department news release.
Police said the suspects were described as in their late teens or early 20s and they reportedly fled in a blue GMC sport-utility vehicle.
The gift cards were immediately rendered unusable and police said the victim may be able to have them reissued.
