A man robbed a gas station in Paso Robles Sunday and then turned himself into police in Fresno on Monday.
Charles Donald Wheeler Jr., of Paso Robles, robbed Eagle Energy Gas Station at 2400 Golden Hills Road without using a weapon and rode away on a Harley Davidson style motorcycle, Paso Robles police said. Wheeler, 51, took money from the register while a cashier was on duty around 10:20 a.m. Sunday. No injuries occurred.
Wheeler robbed the gas station while wearing blue jeans and a red shirt, as well as a black rag covering his head and a pair of dark sunglasses.
On Monday, Wheeler surrendered himself to the Fresno Police Department. Paso Robles detectives drove to Fresno early Monday afternoon to return Wheeler to San Luis Obispo County and book him in jail on one count of robbery.
