A man with a gun walked into a smoke shop this morning on north Carson Street and demanded money. Once the robber went back out the front door, a store employee jumped in his vehicle and pursued the robber. The chase wound up around Arrowhead and Goni, but according to reports, the robber was driving too recklessly to follow – so the employee broke off the chase.
The bandit was described as 5 foot 6, wearing a gray and black T-shirt. He left in a dark colored vehicle.
An information release from the Sheriff’s Office should be forthcoming soon.
