NEWBURY PARK : Award Offered in Gas Station Robbery

October 17, 1994|GREG RIPPEE

Ventura County Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information that identifies two men who robbed a Newbury Park gas station at gunpoint last Sunday.

The suspects, one of whom held a handgun, approached an employee of the Chevron gas station on Camino Dos Rios, near the Wendy Drive on-ramp to the Ventura Freeway, when she was closing the cash booth about 11 p.m., sheriff's deputies said.

After entering the booth with her, the suspects collected the receipts from the cash register and demanded money from the other employee. They then fled.

Witnesses described the suspects as short and slender Latinos, about 23 years old. The gunman wore a black baseball cap with a green bill, witnesses said.

Crime Stoppers, a private, nonprofit group, says callers can remain anonymous. The telephone number is 805-494-TALK.
