Information Sought on Commercial Robbery

CRIME STOPPERS and the Springfield Police Department are asking for help identifying suspects involved in a commercial robbery.  

The crime occurred at 11:38am on December 23rd at Creative Car Audio, located at 717 W Sunshine. The primary suspect entered the store, grabbed a car stereo from the sales floor and attempted to flee. When confronted by employees, the suspect displayed a pocket knife and made threats. The suspect was then allowed to leave with the merchandise.

The suspect was described as a white male in his late teens to early twenties, five feet ten inches tall with a slim build. He was wearing a blue stocking cap with tie strings on the sides, along with a blacked hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

The suspect left in a gray, late 80s hatchback. The vehicle was described as spewing a large amount of smoke from the exhaust. Two females were also in the vehicle with the suspect. One was described as a white female with long, red hair, wearing blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt with black letters across the front.

If you were in the area of this incident and saw any suspicious people or vehicles at these times, or if you know the suspects, please call Crime Stoppers. Do NOT try to apprehend the suspects, as they may become violent. Call CRIME STOPPERS at 869-TIPS (8477) or go on-line at www.tipsubmit.com.  Tipsters do not have to give their name and could earn a reward.

Crime Stoppers takes information about drug dealers, wanted felons, and all other felony crimes.  We pay rewards of up to $1000.00 in cash for the information that leads to the arrest and the filing of charges against people involved in felony crimes.
