Three men, one of them armed with a gun, robbed an employee Tuesday evening at an Otay Mesa strip mall smoke shop, police said.
Just before 7:50 p.m., the trio walked into Vishions Smoke Shop, on Palm Avenue just west of Interstate 805, and one of the men pointed a gun at the employee while demanding money, according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.
While the gunman went to the register and took an unknown amount of cash, the other two men stole several display items, Heims said. They were last seen leaving the store’s front door and heading in an unknown direction.
All of the men wore dark colored hoodies and gloves, police said. Only vague descriptions of their appearances were immediately available.
Robbery detectives from the San Diego Police Department were investigating the incident. Anyone with information about the robbery was urged to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
