SDPD: Man Feigned 12-Pack Purchase in Walmart Holdup

SDPD: Man tried to use 12-pack of Bud Light to rob a Walmart

A Walmart shopper brought a 12-pack of Bud Light to the register last month but instead of handing the cashier a $20, he handed over a demand note, San Diego police said.

It was just after noon on Friday, July 17 at the Logan Heights Walmart on Imperial Avenue.

The thin man wearing sunglasses used a demand note suggesting he had a handgun, officials said.

The unidentified clerk became very nervous and was unable to open the register. 

At that point, the would-be robber walked off without the money or the beer.

Now, San Diego County Crimestoppers has released surveillance images of the man wanted in this attempted robbery. They're also offering $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

Anyone with information on the person in the images or the crime can contact the San Diego Police Department’s Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
