Caught on camera: man uses gas, lighter during robbery

Posted: Updated:

Police in Pasadena, Texas are asking for the public's help solving a bizarre robbery.

The suspect entered the Big C Market in Pasadena shortly before 10:00 pm on January 12th carrying a gas can.

The man picked up a four-pack of Bud Light & Clamato, then placed the beer on the counter.

He then poured gasoline on the floor in front of the counter and threatened to burn down the store if the clerk didn't hand over money, flicking a lighter as he talked.

The clerk complied and the man left the store with the beer and cash.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic man in his 40s, approximately 5'-9" tall, with black bushy hair and a medium build.
