Former Walmart Employee Suspected In Riverside County Robberies

PALM DESERT (CBS) — A former Walmart employee is wanted on suspicion of robbing Walmart stores across Riverside County.

Raul Roy Trujillo, 25, is believed to be behind the four robberies and should be considered armed and dangers, Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. David Florez said.

Trujillo is suspected in robberies at Walmart stores in Palm Desert and Beaumont. He also may be connected to thefts from stores in Corona and Chino, Florez said.

Trujillo has family throughout Riverside County, but may have fled the state. Investigators believe Trujillo knows he is wanted by law enforcement.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts can call the sheriff’s department at (760) 836-1600.
