Paso Robles police are searching for a man who robbed a gas station at gunpoint Wednesday night.

Upon receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber fled by foot westbound toward Oak Street. The suspect was inside the gas station for several minutes before he fled.

Police say the robber was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black gloves, blue jeans and a dark bandana that was covering his face.

Was this police statement given by Captain Obvious….


“Police say the robber was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black gloves, blue jeans and a dark bandana that was covering his face.”

All of which were immediately discarded once fleeing the store.


Police could have also offered some physical details to the public which would be more helpful.


He was 5’8″ tall, with puss gut beer belly, weighing 225 pounds. He spoke fluent english or he spoke with an accent, maybe he had a pronounced limp or ran north on Spring St. like a gazelle once leaving…physical traits…..you know things that someone could use to identify him.
