The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance
in locating a suspect wanted for robbing the Vons grocery store at 163 South
Turnpike Road in Santa Barbara on Friday night around 8:10 p.m. The suspect was
captured on surveillance video entering the store several minutes before the
robbery took place.
The suspect went through a check-out line pretending to buy merchandise, when
the cashier handed him his change, he showed her a handgun attached to his
waistband and demanded money from the cash register. The cashier turned over
what she had in the register and the suspect quickly left the store. Deputies
along with K9 teams responded but were not able to locate the suspect.
The suspect is described as a heavy set Hispanic male in his late twenties,
about 6'2" tall and about 250 to 275 pounds. He was wearing a dark cap with a
white logo, a long white-sleeved shirt with a black and white checkered pattern,
dark pants and white shoes.
