HESPERIA – Three burglary suspects remain at large after the theft of a Hesperia store early Saturday morning. At around 4:45 a.m. two suspects entered the Hi Desert Shoes and Apparel store located in the 16900 block of Main Street in Hesperia and left with over $5000 worth of merchandise.
Suspect #1 is described as being White or a Hispanic man with a full tattoo sleeve on both arms all the way to his knuckles. Suspect #2 was described only as a black man. The third suspect was not captured on surveillance footage, but acted as a getaway driver and possible lookout during the burglary. Suspect #3 was driving a late-model grey Nissan Altima.
Store owners said that the two suspects made entry into the store through the roof of a store next door. The alarm sounded and deputies from the Hesperia station responded., Responding deputies noticed nothing suspicious, since there was no visible forced entry. The suspects hid inside the store for approximately an hour while deputies were investigating the cause of the alarm activation.
Shortly after, the suspects again caused alarm activation and the police again responded, this time to find a damaged back door. The deputies were able to enter the store through the broken door, but the suspects had already fled the scene.
The suspects left with brand name items including Sullen, Fox, Metal Mulisha, Cactus, and Harley Davidson clothing and shoes. No arrests have been made as of Monday evening. Store owners are asking for the public’s help to identify these thieves.
