[ARCHIVED] McKinleyville Gas Station Armed Robbery

On Nov. 20, 2018, at about 12:30 a.m., Humboldt County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a gas station on the 2600 block of Central Ave. in McKinleyville for the report of an armed robbery that had just occurred.

According to the store clerk, two masked suspects entered the gas station just before 12:30 a.m. One of the suspects brandished a firearm and demanded money from the cash register. The second suspect began taking multiple cartons of cigarettes from behind the counter. The suspects then fled the store westbound on Reasor Road with approximately $250 in cash and multiple cartons of cigarettes valued at more than $500.

No one was injured during this incident.

The first suspect is described as a white male adult, approximately 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a gray sweatshirt, a blue face mask, light blue jeans with a faded white front, a black baseball cap with a red logo and red shoes.
