For the third time in two weeks, a man wielding a handgun robbed a South County business. In each case, the suspect was described as a white man, about 6 feet tall with a medium build.

On Saturday at about 4:45 p.m., a man armed with a handgun entered the Nipomo Smoke Shop at 110 Mary Avenue and demanded money. The store clerk gave the robber about $350.

The robber then fled on foot.

Deputies describe the thief as a white male in his 30’s, approximately 6 feet tall with a medium build. He had a bandana covering his face and was wearing a white hooded sweatshirt inside out.

On Friday evening, a man wielding a handgun robbed the Sycamore Springs Resort in Avila Beach. During that robbery, the thief wore a black ski mask and a black hoodie.

Last Thursday, on Aug. 4, a white male wearing a white surgical mask and a black or dark-colored hoodie robbed the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach at gunpoint.

No one was injured in in any of the robberies.

If this guy is lucky he will get arrested and put in jail. His luck is going to run out soon.

This guy is your regular Jesse James. Crazy son of a gun.
