Just got real, lobsters. This is my gas station… the one that I go to when I forget to load up on the cheap stuff at Costco. It’s down the street from my place in Bay Park. So… time to put on my crime dog hat. Well, looky what BP found… from a mere 18 days ago.

Ah-ha! Two different gas stations in the Bay Park area in one month? Well, well, well. You’re welcome San Diego Police Department, I just connected the dots for you to start looking for this serial gun toting thief. He is: THE HISPANIC HOODIE BANDIT. Chances are, I’m gonna have to solve this neighborhood crimes spree on my own. Time to get
gangster gangsta on the Hispanic Hoodie Bandit. It’s only a matter time before somebody gets hurt when you’re running around pointing guns at people. I’ve had enough, I’ve got a family to protect… a community to protect! All I have to do is find this extremely rare breed of San Diego man described at the robbery. Shouldn’t be too tough… a short Mexican wearing a hoodie and jeans near the Clairemont area.
