Pleasant Hill police released surveillance photos taken of two armed men who robbed a Mobil gas/convenience store in their city Monday, and who may be responsible for an earlier stickup at another Mobil outlet in Walnut Creek.
Police were called to the Mobil station at 1616 Oak Park Blvd. after the cashier reported being robbed at gunpoint between 6:40 p.m. and 7:10 p.m., investigators said.
The suspects reportedly had handguns in their waistbands and wore black ski masks over their faces. They allegedly took cigarettes, beef jerky and money before fleeing the store.
A Mobil station and convenience store was also robbed Dec. 29 on Newell Avenue in Walnut Creek, with a single gunman entering the store and making off with cigarettes and cash.
No one was harmed in either incident.
No. 1: Black adult, 6 feet, 2 inches, wearing a green jacket and black sweatpants
No. 2: Black or Hispanic adult, 6 feet 2 inches, and wearing a white T-shirt, a black, hooded sweatshirt with a white logo on the front and “distressed” jeans. No getaway vehicle was seen, police said.
Anyone with information or who witnessed this incident is asked to contact the Pleasant Hill PD at 925-288-4600.
