Armed Men Rob Spring Valley Auto Store
AutoZone store target of robbery
The San Diego County Sheriff's office is investigating into an armed robbery that occurred at an auto store Saturday evening in Spring Valley.
At about 8 p.m. two male adults wearing hooded sweatshirts entered the 699 Sweetwater Rd AutoZone store, said Sgt. Sergeant Steffen.
The suspects were armed with what was thought to be a black semi-automatic handgun, Steffen said.
The men reportedly took a wallet from a customer in the store, the money from the register and forced an employee to open the store safe.
The suspects then fled through the front door.
No injuries were sustained during the robbery.
The total loss was estimated at $2,500 and no arrests have been made at this time.
