SUSPECTS: 4 Male Adults
UNIT:  Palmdale Sheriff’s Station
According to preliminary reports received by responding deputies, four male adults armed with black semiautomatic firearms were involved in the incident. The suspects were reported to be driving an unmarked newer black Ford Explorer equipped with red/blue interior light bars mounted on the windshield. Additionally, an older white Ford cargo van was noted as a secondary vehicle accompanying the suspects. The suspects utilized red/blue lights, seemingly attempting to mimic a legitimate traffic stop.
Upon halting the victims' cargo van along Agua Dulce Canyon Road, two male black adults wearing all black attire, ski masks, and gloves emerged from the Ford Explorer. Subsequently, two more male adults, similarly dressed, exited a white cargo van and proceeded to ransack the victim's vehicle, forcibly taking unspecified items.
