Officials from the Tehachapi Police Department are looking for help from the community in locating two men identified as suspects in a suspected armed robbery.
According to Detective Denise Brown, two Hispanic men entered Circle K, 302 E. Tehachapi Blvd., on Oct. 27 between 11:30 p.m. and midnight, and went to the back of the store as if they were shopping. The men then approached the clerk at the counter and one of the men appeared to have a weapon under his sweatshirt. Although the object was never displayed, the implication was there, Brown said.
The suspects left the store with two beers in hand and $50 from the cash register. Looking at store survellance tape, Brown said investigators determined that the pair pulled up and left again in a white truck.
She described the truck as a two-door Chevrolet Colorado, with no license plate and no tailgate.
The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, roughly 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 200 pounds.
The second suspect appears to also be Hispanic, about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and 150 pounds.
TPD has distributed the photos now after the search for these men dead ended. Brown expressed she hopes the community can give valuable information on the identities and location of the suspects.
The suspects were last seen leaving in the truck, eastbound on Tehachapi Boulevard.
If you see the suspects, Brown said, do not confront them, as they are considered dangerous. Call 911 if you see them presently, but call Brown directly if you saw them previously. She can be reached at 822-2222, extension 106.
"We're trying to pick up their track again," the detective said.
