Upland T-Mobile store robbery suspect sought

UPLAND, Calif.

On Friday, police say the suspect barged into the store with a silver semi-automatic handgun. Authorities say he then forced the employees into a back room, where he made them fill a bag with Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy Note 3s.

Investigators say the suspect fled in a newer model red or burgundy Kia 4-door vehicle. The car had paper plates, mirrored tinted windows and was driven by a get-away driver. That driver was described as a 17-or 18-year-old African American female.

Officials say the car has possible damage to the driver's side rear area, due to a collision while fleeing the scene.

The suspect was described as an African American male in his early 20s, about 6 feet tall, weighing about 150 pounds. He was wearing black jeans, a hooded sweatshirt, white tennis shoes, a surgical mask and gloves.

If you have any information about this incident, you're urged to contact Detective Jim Potts at (909) 946-7624.
