A strangely polite duo of masked robbers is believed, by two law enforcement agencies, to have undertaken a series of gas station robberies this morning.

They drove a green Honda Civic, and police are still looking for them. More below.

From the Eureka Police Department:

On 01/28/16 at about 5:36 a.m., Officers with the Eureka Police Department responded to a gas station on the 3500 block of Broadway for the report of an attempted robbery that had just occurred.

The employee told officers that two males wearing masks entered the gas station and told him to open the cash register. One male brandished a small silver semi auto pistol while the other attempted to open the cash register. After a short time, the two males left the store empty handed in an unknown direction. Prior to leaving, one male said, “Have a good day.” Officers checked the area but were unable to locate any suspects.

Both males were described as light skin with black masks. One male was wearing a gray horizontal striped hooded sweatshirt and shorts over pants. The second male was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call Detective Cosetti at (707) 441-4315.

From the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office:

On today’s date (1/28/16) at approximately 6:50 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a robbery that just occurred at the 76 Gas Station on Central Ave, McKinleyville. Deputies arrived on scene and spoke with two of the victims. They stated two white males with ski masks entered the business. Supsect #1 brandished a small silver semi-automatic handgun at the victims and demanded money from the cash drawer. The second suspect grabbed cartons of cigarettes from behind the register. After the suspects were given the cash they left on foot southbound through the parking lot and got into an older green Honda Civic and drove off.

Suspect #1 is described as a white male adult, 5’8” in height, wearing a hooded sweatshirt with light gray and dark gray horizontal stripes, dark shorts, long socks, and a black ski mask.

Suspect #2 is described as a white male adult, 5’5” in height, wearing a black hoodie, light green pants, black shoes, and a dark gray ski mask.

These suspects possibly match the description of the suspects in the robbery that occurred in the city of Eureka this morning. Please see EPD’s press release for further information.

Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-
