Pierce County Sheriff’s detectives need your help to identify the suspect who robbed a convenience store on 112th Street South in Parkland at gunpoint.
At 6:40 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17 detectives say he walked into the Handy Corner Grocery store and pulled a ski mask over his face, then displayed a handgun and demanded cash. He took the money and fled the store.
"This is probably a suspect who robbed many places with a ski mask on but this time we got lucky and got a picture of him showing his face so we want to take advantage of that opportunity and get him identified," said Det. Ed Troyer.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20’s, approximately 5-feet, 11-inches tall, with a medium build, dark brown hair, a goatee/mustache and sideburns. During the robbery he was seen wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, a black zippered sweatshirt with a gray hood and a black ski mask.
If you know his name, Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County will pay you a cash reward of up to $1,000 if the information leads to his arrest. Call the hot line anonymously at 1 (800) 222-TIPS or use the P3 TIPS App on your phone to submit the information.
