Douglas County Sheriff’s Office
Three black males approached the female clerk while she was standing outside and then<br />followed her back into the store and demanded money and the safe. One of the suspects<br />placed a gun to her head and followed her back behind the counter while another suspect<br />ordered her to “get the safe open.”
Three robbers held up a liquor store in Larkspur on Thanksgiving Day, with one robber holding a gun to a clerk’s head.
On Thursday the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office released a photo of one of the robbers in hope of receiving tips from the public on the suspect’s identity.
The robbery happened about 4:50 p.m. at Hops & Vines, 8993 Spruce Mountain Road, the sheriff’s office said.
The trio approached the clerk as she was standing outside the business and followed her inside. They demanded money and that she open the safe. One of the robbers put a gun to the clerk’s head. At least two robbers were armed; they wore all black clothing, including black ski masks. They fled in a small white car, possibly a Honda or Mitsubishi, the sheriff’s office said.
Anyone with information on the robbery or who recognizes the man in the photo is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 303-814-7085.
