Police seek witnesses to electronics heist

Tuesday September 24, 2002

Berkeley police say they are looking for people who may have witnessed an armed robbery at the Cambridge Sound Works store at 2350 Shattuck Ave., Sept. 15, even though witnesses may not have known what was going on. 

Police say three men took over the store at about noon and stole more than $75,000 worth of electronics. One suspect has been arrested. Two remain at large. 

The robbers posed as store employees and ushered customers out of the business while employees were bound and locked in a bathroom. They locked the store doors and pretended to be closed after turning a number of customers away. 

Anyone who was at Cambridge Sound Works between noon and 2 p.m., Sept. 15 is urged to contact Berkeley police at 981-5742.
