Armed robber strikes Clinton gas station again

An armed robber dressed in a puffy jacket and sunglasses may have struck a Clinton gas station for the second time in less than three weeks.

At about 10:15 p.m. Sunday, a man entered Naomi’s gas station in Clinton, brandished a long-barreled revolver and demanded money and cigarettes from the clerk, according to the Island County Sheriff’s Office.

The clerk describes the suspect as a white male, about 5-foot-8 to 6-feet tall. He was wearing a black puffy jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt, a black beanie or stocking cap, aviator-type sunglasses, turquoise sweat pants and white sneakers.

The clerk stated that the suspect had a “chubby” round face and a light growth of facial hair, according to a press release.

The sheriff’s office says the description matches the description of the suspect in the Halloween night robbery of the same gas station. In that robbery, however, the sheriff’s office described the man as a “Hispanic male” in a press released.

Detectives released still images from surveillance video. The suspect in the Oct. 31 and Nov. 12 robberies appears to be the same person.

In the Oct. 31 robbery, the suspect brandished a long barrel revolver and demanded the clerk put the cash from the register in a bag.

The man left the business on foot in the direction of Langley Road.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Island County Sheriff’s Office via the ICOM dispatch center at 360-679-9567 or via e-mail at tips@co.island.wa.us
