“It was somebody who knew what they were doing,” police Lt. Robert Bastreri said.
The robbery started just before midnight when the robbers entered the Yokohama Tires store at 601 S. Acacia Ave. Some of the robbers held two security guards at gunpoint while the others backed up at least one truck and attached it to the trailer. The guards saw at least three men, Bastreri said.
The robbers then simply drove away with the goods, Bastreri said, estimated to be worth about $500,000.
As of Saturday morning, police have no leads but are continuing to investigate the incident, the lieutenant said.
Investigators ask anyone with information about the robbery to call police at 714-738-6800.
