Sheriff Releases Picture of Armed Robber in Poway

The Sheriff's Department is looking for your help to identify a man who threatened an employee with a pistol while robbing a Walmart in Poway last weekend. The thief approached the customer service counter around 8p.m. Saturday at the Walmart on Community Road then displayed a semi-automatic silver and black pistol in his waistband and demanded the employee open the cash register, according to San Diego County sheriff's officials. 

The man removed the entire cash drawer and ran away with an undisclosed amount of cash. The robber was described as a roughly 5-feet-11-inch black man who is unshaven with a medium complexion. He appeared to be in his 30's and was wearing a black or dark blue shirt, black pants, black shoes, black Nike gloves and a blue baseball cap with white lettering. The baseball cap also had an image of a marlin on the front, which investigators believe could be advertising for a charter fishing vessel.  

Anyone with information about the identity or location of the suspect was asked to call the Poway Sheriff's Station at (858) 513-2800 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters, who can also contact the agency online at, may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
