The Bakersfield Police Department is asking for the community’s assistance identifying and locating suspects wanted for a burglary to a business.

On July 14, 2016 at about 8:25pm, three suspects forced entry into the Shell Gas Station located at 4200 Buck Owens Blvd. Once inside, the suspects removed a lottery machine and fled in a late 1990s or early 2000s GMC extra-cab truck. The body of the truck appears to be dark brown and the entire bed of the truck appears to be white, with no front license plate.

About two hours after the burglary, the suspect wearing a turquoise shirt entered the Fastrip on 805 34th Street and attempted to redeem winnings from some of the stolen lottery tickets.

The suspect #1 was an unknown race male, wearing a dark green or grey hooded sweatshirt, a dark baseball cap on underneath the hood of the sweatshirt, black gym shorts with two distinct reflective stripes running the length of the shorts on the sides, and one reflective stripe around the bottom of each leg, a turquoise t-shirt can be seen sticking out untucked from the bottom of the sweatshirt, grey or blue boxer style underwear can be seen sticking out from the back of the shorts, black tennis shoes with white soles, black gloves with some sort of white logo or design on each glove.

Suspect #2 was also an unknown race male, wearing a dark gray baseball cap with some sort of logo on it, a large white, long-sleeved t-shirt with a logo on the back that says, "American Refractory Service Inc", underneath that he is wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black gloves, jeans, and tan work boots.
