Man wanted for stealing beer at gunpoint

Click to enlarge photo

This man is sought in a September robbery of a Las Vegas business.

Metro Police released surveillance camera photos of a man suspected of robbing beer from a central Las Vegas Valley store early last month.

The robbery happened near South Decatur Boulevard and West Sahara Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. on Sept. 11, police said.

The suspect entered the store and obtained beer from the refrigerator section. The suspect was attempting to leave the business when he was confronted by an employee.

The suspect then brandished a gun from his waist band, aimed it at the employee and instructed him to back off or else he would kill him, police said.

The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, 6 feet tall, 170 pounds with tattoos on his arms. Police said he left the business in a white four-door Mercedes Benz.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Robbery Section at 702-828-3591, or — to remain anonymous — to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-555 or crimestoppersofnv.com.

  1. "Man wanted for robbing beer at gunpoint"

    Really?

    How did the beer hold up its hands? What did he take from the beer? Did the beer give a heads-up to the rest of its pack that it was being robbed? Do they have a case against this robber?

    Just wondering.

  2. Mr. Bloom,

    You might want to look things up before making posts like that. The term was used properly.

    Maybe. But I did not change the title from "robbing" to "stealing."

    Just saying.

    Now please excuse me while I get back to my beer. Its still a little foamy from the robbery.

  4. The Sun doesn't show the picture of the perp on the mobile site. I was wondering what kind of person steals beer at gunpoint and then drives away in a Mercedes. Then I saw the picture. Yeah, that guy needs a 3 to 5 year time-out.

  5. Some good advice every dumbass like this should heed -- never get a tattoo where the video or the jury could see it.

  6. See what happens when a dependent whiner doesn't get enough benies to fuel his beer habit.

  7. Please don't blame his beer stealing on the economy.I'm so sick and tired of hearing that,especially in this case.The situation came this close to turning from a beer snatch into a possible murder and all over a freak'n beer. WOW
