Long Beach Police Appealing To Public To Identify Possible Murder Suspects

LONG BEACH (CBS) — Long Beach police are asking for the public’s help to  identify two men who may have been involved in a deadly robbery.

Authorities released sketches of the suspects Friday showing two men that Long Beach police say may have been involved in the murder of Franklin Robles on  the afternoon of Aug. 9th, 2010.

Investigators say the men robbed Robles then fatally shot him outside of Ramsey’s Auto Shop in the 1400 block of West 16th Street. Robles was attempting to buy a car before he was killed.

Officials say Robles’ Lake Elsinore home was burglarized that same day by two suspects who resemble the men in the sketches.

Long Beach homicide detectives handed out bulletins Monday afternoon with the composite sketches hoping someone will come forward with information.

“We’re hoping that somebody that works in the area, drives through the area, delivers to the area . . . may recall seeing these pictures,” Lt. Lloyd Cox said of the Long Beach Police Department.
