Bakersfield Police: Thief takes beer, comes back for cigarettes

A man who walked into a Bakersfield Circle K convenience store took beer without paying, came back five minutes later to snatch cigarettes out of the hand of a clerk and fled the store, according to Bakersfield Police.

The robbery happened at 5:05 a.m. on June 4 at the Circle K at 5600 Auburn Street and police said the suspect is described as an Hispanic male, early 20s, short goatee, wearing a white tank top, white and black shorts, white socks and black shoes.

Police said the suspect entered the store and selected several cases of beer, and fled the store without paying for the items. Approximately five minutes later the suspect returned to the business, approached the clerk, and asked for cigarettes. As the clerk was holding the cigarettes, the suspect forcefully removed the item from the clerk’s hand and attempted to run from the business. The clerk confronted the suspect and a brief struggle ensued; however, neither the suspect nor victim sustained any injuries.

The suspect was seen leaving the store in a newer model, four-door sedan, silver in color.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call Detective Rudy Berumen (661) 326-3538, or the Bakersfield Police Department (661) 327-7111.
