Suspect sought in Carson gas station robbery

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

Police are looking for a man who robbed the Jacksons Chevron gas station at Rand Avenue and Highway 50 East.

Carson Sheriff’s Detective Dave Le Gros said the suspect entered the convenience store about 5:30 a.m. Sunday and pried the register open with a crowbar.

When the lone clerk came around a corner, “He told her to stay back, I only want the money,” said Le Gros.

The man made off with a small amount of cash and fled north on foot behind the store, said Legros.

The man is described as in his late teens or early 20s, with shaved light brown or blond hair. He was wearing a black zip-up hooded jacket with three stripes down each sleeve.

Anyone with information on this robbery can provide an anonymous tip to Secret Witness at 322-4900. Le Gros can be contacted at 887-2020 ext. 41404.
