Clerks say no one was hurt.

The store and witnesses say they called Citrus Heights Police, but no officers responded for two hours. The police department wouldn't comment on response time, but said officers respond faster to assault calls than shoplifting calls.

The Citrus Heights Police Department is currently searching for the unidentified male and two unidentified females featured in the video.

The suspects are wanted for robbery, attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

They encourage anyone with information to call (916) 727-5524.
