The suspect was captured on video robbing the Shell gas station in Spanaway on Pacific Ave S on Oct. 30. Surveillance video shared by Crime Stoppers shows the man enter the store just after 10:30 p.m., point a gun at the clerk and demand him to empty out the cash register.
The clerk is visibly shaken, so the suspect tells him to hand over the whole tray, and he grabs the cash from it.
Before he leaves, the suspect turns around and tells the clerk to get him a pack of Marlboro black cigarettes. The clerk gives him a pack, and the suspect walks out, tucking his handgun in his jacket.
Detectives describe the suspect as a white man with a mustache, thick black-frame glasses, and blonde or auburn hair. The suspect wore a watch on his left wrist and an adjustable-fit "L.A." baseball hat with a sticker on the bill. Police say the suspect wore unique white and black shoes, and may have used a shoulder holster to hide his gun.
