"Go ahead and do something," thief tells store clerk
Authorities are seeking to apprehend two suspects who robbed the 7-Eleven convenience store on the 100 block of Worthington Avenue in Spring Valley on Tuesday night.
According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, the suspects, described as “a Hispanic male, large build, shaved head, goatee, multiple tattoos, white tank top, and black shorts [and] a Hispanic female, average build, black tee-shirt, black spandex pants,” entered the store and grabbed two eighteen packs of Bud Light and Miller Lite. The male briefly placed the beer on the counter, then picked it up and exited the store, where he encountered an employee smoking a cigarette.
“Go ahead and do something,” the suspect told the clerk before calmly departing in a grey Toyota Camry sedan and traveling westbound on Paradise Valley Road.
What the clerk did was obtain the license plate number of the vehicle and promptly report the theft to law enforcement, though a subsequent scan of the license plate turned up an “unreported stolen vehicle.” No one was injured in the incident.
