Bayview robber still at large
The masked gunman who robbed a Bayview gas station last week is still at large, island police have confirmed.
According to Detective Ed Wallace with the Island County Sheriff’s Office, the department has investigated plenty of leads but none had led to an arrest as of Wednesday afternoon. Wallace said at the time, however, that he was still looking into more leads and is hoping for continued support from the community.
“I’ve got four or five good leads,” Wallace said. “Please keep the tips coming because we’re looking into every single one.”
At about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 4, a man wearing a black mask and camouflage clothing stormed the Valero gas station and robbed the single clerk with a pump-action shotgun.
The robber is believed to be a Caucasian male, between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet tall. Although initially described as thin, detectives now say he made be of moderate build.
