According to Sheriff Maxey Cerliano, on April 16 at the Zippy J’s convenience store in the 5100 block of Estes Parkway, two men robbed the customer at a fuel pump at around 4:20 a.m.
The victim stated an unknown man with a silver colored revolver sat down next to him in the passenger seat of his vehicle and took two cell phones and a small amount of cash, then left the scene in a vehicle driven by another man.
