SUMMARY:             

 

On Tuesday December 2, 2014, at 4:07 p.m., the above pictured suspects entered the Chevron Gas Station at 2890 Lenwood Road in Barstow.  Suspect #1 purchased a soft drink and then stole several cell phone chargers from the display rack. Suspect #2 then approaches the clerk with his right hand in his vest pocket, leading the victim clerk to believe he had a firearm. Suspect # 2 demanded cash from register as well as Camel “Crush” and Marlboro cigarettes. After obtaining the money and cigarettes the suspects then exited the store and fled the area in an older model, tan Honda 4 door, which they had backed into a parking space in front of the store. 

 

Further investigation revealed that these same two suspects also robbed the clerk at the USA Gas Station located at 1400 East Main Street in Barstow 15 minutes prior to the robbery at Chevron. Although no firearm was seen, both victims believed the suspect was armed.            

 

Anyone with information about these robberies is urged to contact the Barstow Police Department Detective Division at (760)255-5181.  Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call the We-Tip hotline at 1(800)78-CRIME.
