Man dressed as luchador robs gas station

SANTA FE (KRQE) – The search is on for an armed robber disguised as a luchador.

Santa Fe police say Saturday night, the man walked into the Fill ‘Er Up gas station near Cerrillos and St. Michaels Drive.

He then slipped the clerk this note that said: “Cash register and safe one minute or else.”

The employee emptied the register, but when he told the crook he didn’t know how to open the safe, he says the suspect aimed the gun at him and cocked it. The employee then opened the safe.

The robber fled in what police believe was a black Honda Civic.

Police say the crook robbed the place without ever saying a word.
