Photos released of suspect in Dublin store robbery

Police: Suspect threatened to burn down gas station unless clerk turned over cash

Police have released photos of a man who robbed a Dublin gas station last week, a police lieutenant said.

Officers responded to a report of a robbery in progress at a Shell gas station at 5933 Dougherty Road at about 11:45 p.m. on March 26, Lt. Herb Walters said.

The suspect entered the gas station with a black bag, baseball bat and red plastic gas can, he said.

He ordered the clerk to put all the money in the bag or he would burn the gas station down, Walters said.

The suspect fled the scene with an unknown amount of money, police said.

Police had previously reported that the car was a Nissan Altima but on Monday updated the description to a Ford Fusion.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call police Det. Sgt. Rafael Alvarez at 833-6682.

So to the comment that attacks an individual that you don't agree with and uses the race card excuse. It's an easy counter attack when there really is no real argument. People are intimidated by race and those who use it know it. Come up with something else to dispute someone's opinion you don't agree with. Maybe people would really listen. It is a tired, old argument, that may be true in some cases, but not always or as often as people claim.

Can't tell from the pic if it's an Obammy/mooshell lover.

One can only hope that Jared is just immature troll deliberately trying to look stupid - childish, but nothing worse than that - instead of the despicable racist low-life his post paints him as.

Louise, it's hard to figure out what point you're trying to make when you play the "playing the race card" card. As best I can figure out your excuse for people making racist comments is that racism is just an "opinion you don't agree with?" If so, expressing the opinion that people's racist comments are offensive and that racism is corrosive and bad is "an opinion." Your playing the "playing the race card" card is apparently an attempt to delegitimize that opinion. That's a "tired, old" argument.
