The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in two armed robberies.
An unidentified man armed with a handgun entered a convenience store in the 3400 block of Coach Lane in Cameron Park between 1 and 2 a.m. on March 15, according to a sheriff’s press release. The robbery was unsuccessful when the store clerk refused to comply with the robber’s demands for money.
The robber then allegedly drove to another convenience store in the 4300 block of Town Center Boulevard in El Dorado Hills. Making the same demands while again armed with a handgun, the man left with an undisclosed amount of money.
The suspect has been described as a white male, 18 to 25 years old, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt with a dark jacket over it, black pants, black shoes and a ski mask with holes cut out for mouth and blue eyes.
Anyone with information concerning the identity of the robber or of the robberies is asked to contact Det. Jonathan Densmore at (530) 642-4718.
