Armed Robbery at Hawthorne Chevron

A gas station in Hawthorne was robbed today.

Deputies say that a man wearing a mask came into the Chevron with a gun and demanded money from the register. ASO deputies are still searching for the suspect and are hoping city residents will come forward with information.

"There were several other customers in the business at the time of the robbery so we hope that by putting this information out there they can come forward and help us identify this suspect. Again, this is a person that is willing to go into a local business in broad daylight with what seemed to be a gun and demand money from the clerk."

Deputies ask that if you have information regarding the robbery to contact the sheriff's office immediately.
