  A gunman made off with an “unknown” amount of money from the Check Advance business on the 900-block of Park Boulevard last Wednesday.

  According to Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West Sacramento Police Department, the suspect entered the check-cashing business at 10:56 a.m., then “removed a handgun from the waistband of his pants and demanded money.” He took the cash and fled on foot.

  The suspect is described as a black male, age 20-30, about 5’6” to 5’8” tall, 180 pounds, with short black hair and a moustache. He was wearing a black “LA’ baseball hat with white stripes, a black hooded jacket, white polo shirt with horizontal stripes, black pants, and black shoes.
