Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies were called this morning to a home in southern Sacramento County where a family was tied up by robbers.
Shortly before 9 a.m., the deputies responded to the robbery call at a residence in the 8800 block of Skipjack Way near Gerber Road and Elk Grove-Florin Road.
Deputies said the suspects, clad in brightly colored vests, used the ruse that they were utility workers to get into the home. Once inside, they handcuffed and tied up the family before searching for cash.
The suspects left without injuring anyone. A media alert from the sheriff's department said it was not immediately known if the robbers were successful in getting away with any loot.
