The person captured with security footage entered the Sam’s Club, and although the business was closed to the public, held several store employees at gunpoint, according to a Sheriff’s Station news release.

After demanding money, this person of interest became alarmed and fled the location.

During the course of this investigation, detectives were able to obtain the attached photos of the suspected robber.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, approximately 25 to 35 years-old, 5 foot 8, approximately 175 to 200 pounds.

If you know the identity of the person shown in these photos, or his whereabouts, detectives are asking that you call LA Crime Stoppers by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.

ORIGINAL STORY
Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station detectives are investigating an attempted armed robbery at Sam’s Club on Carl Boyer Drive.

The incident, which took place Sunday around 2 a.m., left no one injured. Detectives are still trying to determine what, if anything, the suspect was able to steal. 

“The suspect pried a door open and pointed a firearm in the direction of one of the store  employees,” said Deputy Josh  Dubin.

“After the suspect made his way into the store, employees were able to observe the gunman and one of the employees was able to call 911,” the official said.

Officials initially thought the suspect moved all the employees to the back of the store at gunpoint, but that turned out not to be true.

After deputies contacted an employee able to escape outside to call 911, the Sheriff’s Station’s Special Enforcement Team, which is a Special Weapons And Tactics team for the Sheriff’s Station, responded.

After the Special Enforcement Team entered the store, it was able to determine that the suspect had fled the scene.

A crime lab technician was called to the location and detectives are awaiting results of lab tests for evidence, as well as reviewing video footage to determine if they can identify a suspect.

Nothing of significant value has been reported stolen at this time.

Due to the late hour of the robbery, the store was closed and no customers were inside, but there were approximately eight employees.

The Sams Club is located at the 26400 block of Carl Boyer Drive.
