San Juan County, NM – On Friday, August 3 around 9:30 pm the Giant convenience store located at 4151 US 64 in Kirtland, NM was robbed at gunpoint. Surveillance footage of the incident shows two slender Native American males (both of which appear to be in their late teens or early 20’s) enter the store with masks on their heads.

The thinner of the two males, concealing his face with panty hose, jumps onto the counter and points a pistol in the face of the clerk and demands money. As this is occurring, the second male, wearing an orange ski-mask, grabs three packs of beer and exits the store. Both men ran to the south of the business and fled the area.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for help in identifying the two males. Anyone with information can contact Detective Clugston with the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office at 334-6107, or Crime Stoppers at 334-TIPS (334-8477) and earn up to a $1,000 reward.
