Armed woman robs Marysville gas station
An armed woman in a dust mask robbed a Marysville gas station on Tuesday, escaping with thousands in cash and a cellphone.
"We don't get a lot of these. It's kind of out of the ordinary," police Sgt. Chris Sachs said.
Police would not confirm the amount of cash stolen, but said it was substantial.
Armed with a handgun, the woman entered the Lakeview Petroleum in the 1100 block of B Street at 10:38 a.m., wearing a white painter's dust mask and sunglasses, Cpl. Aaron Easton said in a statement.
She forced two employees to the ground, took money from the register and a cellphone, police said.
It was not clear if the thief pointed the weapon at the employees, but no shots were fired.
Citing corporate policies, a store manager declined to comment to the Appeal-Democrat on Tuesday afternoon.
"She had some type of bandage or brace on her left arm that should help identify her," Easton said later. "We don't have an approximate age."
The woman was last seen heading south on Chestnut Street in an older model two-tone, box-style vehicle, described as white and either silver or gray with a sunroof. Officers said the paint on the car may appear faded or oxidized.
In addition to the arm brace, the woman was described as about 5-foot-3, weighing 140 pounds. She was wearing a red baseball cap with a black bill turned backward, a dark-colored shirt with green writing, white pants and black, possibly DC brand shoes, police said.
