SAN DIEGO–Investigators from the Rancho San Diego Sheriff’s Station want the public’s help in identifying and locating two suspects wanted in connection with a series of armed robberies that happened between October and December 2017 across San Diego county.
The so-called “Grinch Bandits” have held up businesses in Spring Valley, San Diego, El Cajon and National City. The suspects entered each location in a similar manner. The first suspect walked in, pointed a shotgun and the clerk and demanded money. The second suspect then took the money from the register.
The first suspect is described as a black man standing around six feet tall and weighing about 175 pounds with an athletic build. The second suspect is described as a black man standing around five feet, nine inches tall.
The “Grinch Bandits” are considered armed and dangerous. Authorities say the public should call 9-1-1- if they spot both suspects. Anyone with information on the suspects can call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered to anyone with information that leads to an arrest in these cases.
