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.

Suspect Description:
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.


  1. Somewhere a wife or girlfriend is wondering why the man of the house took his ski mask when he went out to pick up a few things at the store.

  2. Anybody would willingly steal beef jerky is a danger to themselves and society. They need to be caught because that stuff is just nasty.

  3. If I was single I would buy No. 2 with S&H green stamps. I’m a former Cougar but some of my girlfriends are Cougars in real life. Did I just type that?

    • @Danielle – You did and you can’t take it back. We got too much of a kick out of it. Cougarism is a natural state, just don’t go all Thelma and Louise on us, we have enough to write about as it is.
