Coachella police released surveillance photos on Thursday in hopes of tracking down the man who robbed a convenience store.
On August 24, police said a Hispanic man went into the AM/PM store at 52138 Harrison Street in Coachella. They said he took a case of beer from a refrigeration unit, and as he walked toward the exit, he pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed it at the clerk. The man ran from the store to a waiting vehicle that was parked on Avenue 52, just north of the store.
Police said the suspect was between 19-25 years of age, and was wearing dark colored shorts, a blue short sleeve shirt, and a blue baseball cap. No one was injured and no other items were taken.
