VIDEO: Police Seek Gas Station Armed Robber

A man carrying a handgun held up two gas stations Thursday night along Interstate 5, one in Mission Viejo and another in Laguna Hills.

Police want your help finding a man who robbed two gas stations in South Orange County Thursday night with a handgun.

See photos and videos of the robberies above.

A man wearing a black ski mask first stole cash from a Shell gas station around 11:10 p.m. in Laguna Hills at Lake Forest Drive and Avenida de la Carlota.

About 20 minutes later security cameras spotted the same man robbing a Mission Viejo Chevron at Crown Valley and the I-5 freeway.

Both crimes occurred near I-5. In both instances the man was wearing all black and carrying a black semi-automatic handgun. He demanded—and received—cash.

Police want to find someone who recognizes the man. If you know who he is, police ask you to call 949-425-1900 or call OC Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS or occrimestoppers.org.

Unfortunately, no additional information was provided by OCSD. What's the in the story is all the information that it has released.

Armed robbery gets you a free trip to San Quentin. The robber looks like a kid. What a shame that he would risk his life for a few hundred dollars.
