Three men are on the run from the law after committing two armed robberies on Thursday morning.
They started at Oak Park Market in Salinas at 8:39 a.m., where at least one gun was shown to the clerk. The men made off with just a bottle of Crown Royal. They were unable to get cash from the register, according to the Monterey County Sheriff's Office.
Twenty minutes later, the same men robbed the Elkhorn Superette in Castroville, this time flashing two semi-automatic pistols, the Sheriff's Office said. There they were able to take alcohol, cash and the clerk's wallet.
All three men are described as Hispanic. The first has a thin build and was wearing a black hoodie and black pants. The second is described as husky with black pants and a black hoodie. The third man is thin and was wearing a Chicago Bulls hat, a grey jacket and black pants.
Anyone with information should contact the Monterey County Sheriff's Office at (831) 647-7702.
