Screen grab of video surveillance of a Tuesday morning armed robbery at the Giant gas station at Cerrillos Road and Vegas Verdes.

Here are two camera angles of a pre-dawn armed robbery of the Giant Convenience store at Cerrillos Road and Vegas Verdes early Tuesday morning (two videos at bottom of post).

The two suspects are wearing what police describes as Halloween masks similar to characters called The Immortals from the 2006 Gerard Butler movie, 300, although it is clear one of the masks is clearly red and I think those characters in the movie (I have not seen) were all silver/gray… movie buffs, help me out here. That pic looks more Darth Maul to me).

Here’s the story that ran in Thursday’s New Mexican before the video was given to police and obtained by The New Mexican (we’ve added the video now): Masked pair robs Giant store at gunpoint, makes away with cigs

As yesterday’s story indicates, the pair made off with less than $50 cash and a few packs of Marlboro Red cigarettes. And, despite holding a gun to the clerk’s temple at one point (seen in Camera 1 video below), nobody was physically harmed in the heist.

Police ask anyone with information on the armed robbery to call Det. Tony Trujillo at 955-5038.
