Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze reports that on November 21, 2021 at approximately 7:30 p.m. the Chaffee County Communications Center received a call of an armed robbery at the Centerville Pit Stop (some know it as the Sugarshack) on U.S. 285 in Nathrop.
Deputies from the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the business and contacted the employee/victim. According to the victim, an unknown white male entered the convenience store armed with a large caliber dark-colored semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. The victim complied with the suspect’s demands and the suspect fled on foot heading south from the convenience store with an undetermined amount of money.
The suspect is described as a white male between 25 to 30 years of age, wearing a black surgical mask and all-black clothing, except a red undershirt, a red hat with a black brim, and black frame glasses. The victim also said that the suspect had a three to four-inch tattoo on the left side of his neck.
There were no other patrons in the store at the time and the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office says they believe this is an isolated incident.
Anyone with any information on this incident, is asked to call the Chaffee County Crimestoppers at 719-539-5299.
