Local sheriff’s deputies began searching for two robbery suspects Friday afternoon after they allegedly stole phones from the Verizon store on The Old Road in Stevenson Ranch.
Shortly after 1:50 p.m. Friday two suspects described as two African-American men in their 20s entered the Verizon store at the Valencia Marketplace complex on The Old Road near McBean Parkway.
One of the men wore a dark blue hoodie.
The pair entered the phone store and, by use of force, took a gray Galaxy Note8 phone and a black Galaxy 8Plus phone, then left the store without paying.
They were seen getting into a black SUV.
“This was a black BMW with yellow paper plates,” Lt. Leo Bauer told The Signal, noting the getaway car was a new car.
The vehicle was last seen traveling southbound on The Old Road, he said.
At 3 p.m., deputies were still searching for the suspects.
