Police looking for suspects in Durham gas station robbery


DURHAM— Police are searching for two suspects in a robbery at the Valero gas station early Thursday morning.

State police said a man walked into the Valero gas station about 4:30 a.m., walked to the counter, implied he had a weapon and demanded money. The clerk gave the man an unknown amount of cash, state police said. A second man also entered the store and is believed to be an accomplice, state police said.

The first suspect is described as a dark-skinned Hispanic man, about five foot ten inches tall, 160 pounds, with a shaved head and wearing a light colored coat and blue jeans. The second suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic man about six foot one inches tall, 160 to 170 pounds with a long, scruffy black beard and mustache, and long black hair that came down to his shoulders. He was wearing two jackets and had on red and black pajama type pants, and was wearing a black “skull cap” with the Nike logo on it.

The men were last seen driving westbound on Rt. 147 in a white lower rider single cab pickup truck with unknown Connecticut license plates. State police released security camera photos of the suspects on Friday.

The case is open and under investigation, state police said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Troop F Barracks at (860_ 399-2100.
