West LA Trader Joe's latest target in robbery spree


The market was hit Wednesday at about 9:45 p.m. when multiple suspects stormed the store. All were wearing ski masks and black T-shirts with the word "Security" printed on it.

The rash of robberies began last Saturday at Bob's Market on National Boulevard. A Man in a ski mask and a black "Security" T-shirt was seen on surveillance video entering the store at about 8:30 p.m.

The man pointed a gun at the cashier, demanded money and left with the stolen cash.

The second robbery happened on Tuesday shortly before 9 p.m. at Overland Liquor Store just a few miles away from Bob's Market.

At the liquor store, an armed man wearing the same type of T-shirt demanded money. The man and an accomplice took the cash and fled.

Police say these robbery suspects are dangerous and need to be caught.

LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph said the suspects were seen driving away in a dark-colored four-door vehicle following the first and third robberies. In the second robbery, the suspects were seen leaving in a white four-door vehicle with a sunroof.
