Wanted Sacramento Man Albert Wheeler


Sacramento, Calif.-The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the apprehension of Albert Wheeler.  On August 4, 2020, at approximately 7:27 p.m., Sacramento Police Department patrol officers responded to a disturbance on the 1200 block of Rivera Drive regarding an armed man brandishing a handgun.  The man was later identified as 50-year-old Albert Wheeler.  Officers quickly located Wheeler and attempted to conduct an enforcement stop.  Wheeler led officers on a high-speed pursuit through the neighborhood during which he fired at an officer.  He then fled the area in his vehicle, which was recovered later.  Anyone with any information regarding Wheeler’s whereabouts should contact ATF at 1-(888)-ATF-TIPS (1-(888)-283-8477) or by visiting or through the mobile “Reportit” app, available on both Google Play and the Apple App Store.
