Nice, hi-res photos! However, the time delay between the (alleged) criminal act & today may prove problematic, especially since they are probably from out of the area...

again with the three week delay. C'mon PD. Either you want help or you don't. If you do, don't expect any leads with stale info. And where is the pic of the second suspect. These photos look like the same guy.

Photos 1, 2 & 3 are clearly a different man than 4 & 5. They both are larger men, with dark hair - doesn't make them the same guy. First guy almost looks like Sal from Impractical Jokers (well, in the 3rd pic). Hope they can find them, but I agree, if they are hitting up REI's around SoCal, they probably aren't in town anymore & three weeks ago these photos might have had a better shot at IDing someone.

@113: That's probably why the first few words of the story stated "The two subjects depicted", cause it IS 2 different people.

Yeah, we already worked that out @153. Way to be alert.

Well, maybe it's the morning light on my screen, but I also thought they looked the same.

If I owned that store I would have sent the pics to edhat IMMEDIATELY! The delay hinders any real chance of catching these perps.

Hey, that looks like Chuy Cuevas!
