Recycling robbers escape
Sheriff’s Deputies from the Lemon Grove station are searching for suspects in to the robbery of a recycling center on the 1000 block of Elkelton Boulevard in Spring Valley yesterday.
Responding to a call at around 10:30 a.m., deputies were told by employees at the facility that two black men wearing dark clothing had approached, pointed guns at them, and ordered them to the floor, demanding cash.
The men then fled with two wallets and an undisclosed amount of cash – they were last seen entering an apartment complex across the street, but a search of several units there proved fruitless, as did a general search of the surrounding neighborhood.
