Convenience store robbers escape with only snacks in Rosemead

ROSEMEAD — A group of armed robbers demanded cash from a convenience store clerk early Wednesday, but ultimately fled with only snack chips, officials said.
The robbery took place about 6:05 a.m. at 7-Eleven, 8147 Arroyo Drive, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Edward Godfrey said.
Three suspects entered the store, one of them brandishing a black pistol, the lieutenant said. One of them demanded money from an employee.
Before obtaining and money, however, the men apparently became startled by an approaching customer and fled, Godfrey said. They helped themselves to some chips as they left.
Godfrey described the robbers as three Latino men between 20 and 25 years old, and 5 feet 10 inches to 5 feet 11 inches tall. One wore a black hooded sweat shirt and blue plaid shorts, another wore a black hooded sweat shirt and dark pants and the third wore a gray hooded sweat shirt and gray plaid shorts.
They got into a getaway car described as an older-model, four-door car with its rear license plate painted over, Godfrey said. A driver was waiting in the car, which was last seen westbound on Arroyo Drive.
