Police Wednesday released images taken off a surveillance video of a Santa Ana gas station holdup in hopes of generating tips from the public on the suspect's identity.
The armed robber held up the Mobil gas station at 100 W. MacArthur Blvd., just west of the 55 freeway, about 11:45 p.m. Sunday, said Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.
The suspect is described as a white man about 25 to 30 years old, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall and 180-200 pounds, with short brown straight hair and a light beard. He was wearing a "distinctive paper-boy cap" and was armed with a black, semi- automatic pistol, Bertagna said.
The man apparently got away with cash following the holdup, but the amount was not disclosed.
Anyone with information about his identity or whereabouts was asked to call Orange County Crime Stoppers at (855) TIP-OCCS or detectives at (714) 245- 8545.
Police said the man "should be considered armed and dangerous."
