Help APD locate this truck seen leaving the scene from the Alliance Road gas station

On 5-30-17 at about 5:58 pm, the Arcata Police Department responded to a reported robbery at the 76 Gas Station located at 2205 Alliance Rd in Arcata.

Officers contacted the employee, who said a male subject entered the business, displayed what appeared to be a handgun wrapped in a bandana and demanded money.  The suspect left the business with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled to the rear of the business. 

 The suspect is described as a Hispanic or dark complected white male adult, approximately 35-40 years old, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, large sunglasses, dark blue or black denim shorts.

A witness in the area saw a subject matching the description get into the passenger seat of a brown extended cab Dodge truck with a large white appliance in the bed and running boards.  The vehicle was last seen traveling northbound on Chestnut Pl.

Officers obtained video from a nearby business that captured a vehicle matching the description leaving the area at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contacted the Arcata Police Department.
