Pair Of Late-Night Armed Robberies Reported in Lompoc

Lompoc police are investigating a pair of armed robberies that occurred late Wednesday night at a liquor store and a gas station.

At approximately 11 p.m., officers were alerted to an armed robbery that had occurred at Highway 1 Liquor Store, 618 North H St. 

“Officers arrived on the scene and canvassed the area looking for the suspect; however the suspect was not located,” Sgt. Scott Morgan said. 

As officers were still investigating the first incident, another armed robbery occurred at Lou’s Chevron, 1100 E. Ocean Ave., by a suspect matching the description from the first incident, Morgan said.

The suspect was described as an adult male with a dark complexion, wearing a black mask, a black jacket and gloves, police said.

The man reportedly was between 5 feet, 7 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall and had a medium build.

The weapon used in the robberies was a small-caliber, black semi-automatic handgun.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lompoc Police Department detectives at 80.875.8159.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
