The Summerland Antique Cooperative was robbed Tuesday morning, its two female employees bound with duct tape as a single suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and some store merchandise. The two women, both in their twenties, lay bound for nearly half an hour before a customer walked into the store and found them. Neither appears to have suffered any serious injuries. The suspect is described as a black male, 6’2” to 6’4”, muscular build, late twenties to early thirties, wearing a long-sleeve black shirt, and black jeans. Anyone with information related to the case is encouraged to call Sheriff’s detectives at (805) 681-4150 or the Sheriff’s Anonymous Tip Line at (805) 681-4171.
