Video captures of a man who tried to rob Lucky Liquor in Gardnerville were released by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday.
The theft occurred 8:30 p.m. Dec. 26 at the Gardnerville liquor store. The man demanded money, but when the clerk pushed the alarm button, he grabbed a bottle of vodka and ran out of the store. The would-be robber was described as wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, red shorts with white stripes and black sneakers. He had a red bandana and appears to have a tattoo on his right wrist. He was last seen running east down Toler Lane. He may have gotten into an older light-colored two-tone sport utility vehicle with a noisy exhaust.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call DCSO Investigator Jeff Schemenauer at 775-782-9926 or Douglas County Secret Witness at: 775-78-CRIME (775-782-7463).
