STAFF REPORTS

The San Marcos Police Department is searching for two men they say robbed an interstate-side convenience store at gunpoint shortly after midnight on Sunday, Sept. 26.

A black or Hispanic man entered the Quix store at 1004 N. Interstate 35 at about 12:10 a.m., police say, and pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at the clerk, demanding money from the cash register.

Given an undisclosed amount of money, the man fled the store and and stepped into the passenger side of a small, silver sports utility vehicle, possibly a Chrysler Pacifica. The vehicle had a newer-style seven-digit Texas license plate, police say.

The armed robber was described as a black or Hispanic male of average build, about 5’10” to six feet tall, wearing a plain black hoodie sweatshirt. Along his face he placed a light colored bandana or cloth covering his face. He was also sporting light colored gloves, long denim shorts, ankle high socks and athletic sports tennis shoes.

There is no description available of the driver of the getaway vehicle, police say.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hays County Crimestoppers at 1-800-324-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous, Crimestoppers officials say, and are eligible for a $1,000 reward if their call leads to the arrest and indictment of the suspects.
