Placer County Sheriff's office seeks thieves who stole safe

The Placer County Sheriff's office is asking the public's help in finding two men who lugged a safe out of a Loomis liquor store early Saturday morning.

At 4:20 a.m. Saturday two men were seen on the store video surveillance camera forcing entry into the Stone Tree Liquor & Food on Taylor Road.

The first suspect is described as being approximately 6 feet tall, weighing about 250 pounds and wearing a sweatshirt with "SKIN" written on the front in white lettering. The second man carrying out the safe was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the work "Champion" in red lettering on the back.

A third suspect, who didn't enter the store in the video, is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and about 165 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans. A witness said they saw a fourth suspect fleeing with the group.

The suspects fled in a light-colored import sedan, possibly a tan or gold mid '90's Honda Civic or something similar.

Anyone with information on the suspects or the burglary is asked to call Detective Ryan West at 916-652-2423.
