Three Antelope home holdups possibly related

Robbery detectives believe there might be a strong connection between three Antelope home invasion robberies that have occurred in about the past two weeks.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s detectives said that the armed robbers, all young men or teens, entered each of the residences through open garage doors.

The first robbery occurred at 9:20 p.m. June 30 in the 7500 block of La Tour Drive. The robbery victim described five men or teens armed with handguns entering the residence through an open garage door

Once inside the home, the robbers took money, electronic devices and other items. They escaped in a dark-colored sedan.

The same night, about 20 minutes later, in the 8100 block of Ackerson Way two men armed with handguns entered through an open garage door and robbed the resident, according to an e-mail from the department.

The most recent home invasion robbery occurred about 7 a.m. Monday in the 4000 block of Diane Drive when three men with guns also entered the victim’s residence through an open garage door.

The robbers took electronic devices, cash, wallets and other items. The robbers fled in an older blue sedan.

Detectives are working to solve the robberies but detailed descriptions of the robbers are not available due to the quick-hit nature of the crimes.
