Surveillance video caught an intense armed robbery at a Sacramento cigarette store this week, and hopefully it can help catch the aggressive criminals.
Monday afternoon, a man and woman walked into the Why Pay More Cigarette Store along Auburn Boulevard and grabbed a couple items, presumably to buy.
The woman pulled a gun from her bra, then the video shows her pointing the weapon at the clerk and demanding money. The audio on the surveillance video recorded the woman’s demands.
When the employee refused to open the register, the woman hit a low-hanging surveillance camera with the gun, and then threatened the clerk.
At this point, the employee opened the cash register.
The woman reached into the cash drawer and took some money, then she and the man ran from the store.
