February 5, 2018 |    

A trio of suspected shoplifters avoided apprehension after they threatened a retail employee in Elk Grove.

Shortly after 9 p.m. on Sunday, February 4, a loss prevention employee at the Burlington store on East Stockton Boulevard attempted to stop three people who were observed shoplifting. When the employee approached the suspects, one of the suspects threatened to stab him.

The employee relented, and the three suspects fled the store and were last seen in a white SUV heading south through the parking lot. 

The suspect who threatened to stab the employee was a Black adult female and the two accomplices were a white male adult and a Hispanic female. All three were said to be 30 to 40 years of age.
