It was $11K, straight from the Owner, who said he was caught off guard or the guy wouldn't have gotten away with a dime. So if the Jerk ever tries again, he won't be so lucky. The Owner and employees are so caring of their customers they did not deserve this at all. Actually no one does but especially not them!

It was end of month, end of week payday. They probably had that much cash on hand as they cash checks for workers. Either the robber had inside info or was smart enough to know about the workings of the payday operation or was just lucky, which I really doubt. Flicka, Aliso school is a half of a block down and across the street. I believe you are thinking of the Market not Mi Fiesta.

I'm trying to picture where there is a school across the street from Mi Fiesta Market. There is the pool across Carpinteria Ave from the market.

@Marissa not to worry they ran opposite direction from the school. The robber had to be familiar with the area to know to run up the creek bed.

Heard there was another robbery at or around 7-11 in the 6500 Block of Trigo Road in Isla Vista around 3am...Unknown if it was actually in the store or if it was a citizen who got robbed nearby. Unknown weapon or description of suspect.
