A ski-masked man dressed in a black hooded sweatshirt robbed a Sabinal convenience store and gas station at gunpoint early on the morning of Feb. 3.
The incident occurred at the Shell station, located at the intersection of Highway 90 and Center Street, around 4 a.m.
The thief made off with a little more than $100 in cash.
According to Sabinal Chief of Police Jesus “Chuy” Reyes, the man approached the business from the west side and left by walking east out of the store. Reyes said a witness saw someone matching his description walking north on Center Street.
Shell manager Martha Torres said only one employee was working during the incident. Torres said the employee was shaken up but otherwise OK. Torres said that, per company rules, she could not give a physical description of the suspect.
