CHPD seeks to identify church burglary suspect who brought kids along

At first glance, surveillance images released this week by Citrus Heights police appear to show a group of kids in a Sunday school room with a teacher.

“This burglary in particular is concerning to us because it looks like the suspect brought several juveniles with him, which put them in harms way,” Lt. David Gutierrez told The Sentinel on Friday. “At least a couple of those children appear really young and likely weren’t there for the purpose of burglarizing.”
