A man who strolled out of a mini-mart after an armed robbery with a cash register under his arm is sought by Fresno County sheriff’s detectives.
The robbery took place Sunday at the EZ Shop on the corner of Fowler and Floral avenues west of Selma. Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti said the suspect walked into the store, pulled out a handgun and demanded cash.
Instead of complying, the clerk ran out the back. The gunman picked up the register, ripped out the cord and walked out of the store with it under his arm as cars drove past. He was picked up by a car, which sped away on Fowler.
The suspect was in his late teens to early 20s, with a medium build. He was wearing a Nike beanie and covered his face with a bandana. The getaway car was described as a tan or cream-colored Lincoln with a partial plate of “5P.”
