Police say he ran from the scene and jumped into the bed of a white Ford extended cab F150 pick-up truck and fled the area.

Video surveillance cameras in the store captured images of the suspect. He's described as a Hispanic male, approximately 25 to 35 years of age with black hair and a black goatee. The suspect was wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a white shirt and blue jeans at the time of the crime.
