Roseville police on Tuesday arrested three men in connection with a marijuana robbery and are looking for a fourth suspect.
About 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, three Sacramento men met with four other men in the parking lot of a Galleria Boulevard restaurant to conduct a marijuana sale, according to a Police Department news release. Instead of paying, the four suspects robbed the Sacramento men of their marijuana at gunpoint, then fled in a black Toyota sedan, police said.
A Roseville police officer spotted the vehicle on westbound Interstate 80 and followed it to the dead end of Kenroy Lane, off Riverside Avenue. Two of the passengers got out of the car and fled on foot. The other two remained with the car and were taken into custody.
Roseville and Citrus Heights police, along with California Highway Patrol officers, searched the area around Cirby Way and Riverside Avenue, assisted by the CHP's helicopter, and eventually located the third suspect in the greenbelt area near the 300 block of Cirby Way.
Anthony James McDonald-Randolph (left photo), 21 of Pittsburg, Calif.; Bradley Montrell Lee (right photo), 20, of Louisiana; and a 17-year-old boy from Emeryville were arrested. They are being held in the Placer County Jail and Placer County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of robbery and related charges.
Police said the fourth suspect is believed to be from the Bay Area. He was described as African American, in his 20s, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with black hair in dreadlocks. He may have gold "grill" on his teeth, and was wearing a turquoise polo shirt and shorts. Police said he may be armed with a handgun.
Anyone who sees the suspect is advised to immediately call 911.
