Santa Fe area gas stations are posting signs asking customers to keep the Halloween masks in their cars after a Giant gas station in southwest Santa Fe was robbed a gun point early Tuesday by a man and woman wearing unspecified Halloween masks.
Here’s the story: Masked pair rob Giant store at gunpoint
I called the store Wednesday night and a clerk there said she didn’t know what type of masks were worn and said I’d need to get that info from a manager who wouldn’t be available until Thursday morning.
Police say they won’t know until they see the video from the store, which won’t be available until sometime Thursday.
The police report I found all this info on Wednesday afternoon also didn’t mention the type of masks worn, but did mention the pair took $30-$40 and $20.25 worth of Marlboro Red cigarettes. The clerk had a gun held to her temple and one pointed at her chest, Sgt. Louis Carlos said.
Obviously what type of masks these two were wearing isn’t the most important aspect of this case, catching the two who did it is (call police at 428-3710 if you have info).
But I am curious… “Halloween masks” is pretty broad. Are we talking a couple ninja masks? That would be interesting considering recent events in Santa Fe. Are we talking Susana Martinez and Diane Denish masks? Or are we talking standard monster-type masks?
Guess we’ll have to wait until I get a copy of that surveillance video on Thursday.
