Investigators this week released images of suspects in two Hughson thefts, including a video of a hardware store burglary and photos of a gas station armed robbery.
The burglary occurred Sunday at Hughson Farm Supply on East Whitmore Avenue, just west of Tully Road. Hughson Police Services officials said the two burglars were last seen in a large white Dodge van with a brown stripe, heading south on Tully.
Police described the burglary suspects as a thin white man wearing a baseball hat and a Latino man with an unzipped hooded-sweatshirt.
Video captured with a store security camera shows two suspects running down an aisle at the store. One of burglars is shown in the video grabbing a chainsaw; the other burglar is later shown running down the aisle with two chainsaws.
The armed robbery occurred Saturday at the Sinclair gas station on Santa Fe Avenue, between First Street and Hughson Avenue.
Hughson police said there were two robbers in the holdup, one of them had a shotgun. The suspects were both wearing black pants, black sweatshirts, black masks and black gloves. One of the suspects was wearing bright red shoes with white soles.
