Five men sought in string of liquor, convenience store robberies

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department released video of five men connected to a spree of liquor and convenience store robberies in unincorporated areas of the county.

In multiple robberies between Nov. 21 and Wednesday in north and south Sacramento County, the men have directed store clerks to the register at gunpoint, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

They’ve taken cash as well as cigarettes and robbed customers in at least one instance. Surveillance video shows their faces covered with ski masks or bandanas and wearing dark clothing.

Security footage has shown the men fleeing in a gray, four-door 2004-06 Dodge Stratus with paper license plates and a broken rear passenger side window covered by tape, plastic and cardboard. They’ve also used a gray Ford Taurus produced between 2000 and 2007, also with paper plates.
