Las Cruces Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that helps identify the suspect who stole cash from a Check “N Go store Saturday morning…The robbery occurred at around 9:15 a.m…at the Check “N Go at 400 N. Telshor Blvd, according to a Las Cruces Police new release.

Detectives learned that a man posing as a landscaper walked into the business, demanded money from an employee and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect was last seen leaving the business and walking south along Telshor Boulevard.

The suspect was described as a man about 6-feet tall with a stocky build. He was wearing what appeared to be a blue jump suit, gloves, a mask and a khaki fisherman’s bucket hat. The suspect was carrying a string trimmer or more commonly referred to as a weed-whacker.

Normally, this would end up being the dumb crook of the day – except for the clerk at this payday lender handing over the loot!

    He pulls a weed whacker, you pull a leaf blower. That’s the Californian way.

      Ha, ha. Better than my draft alliteration.

    • Tim says:

      What you guys do in the privacy of your own bedrooms there in the Land of Hot Sex (la tiers de California — calorie + fornicate) is not really my business but, for the love of God, pull something living that will at least give some moaning feedback.

    • Tim says:

      Great. Now I can’t get that tune from The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly out of my head — only it’s set to trying to start poorly-choked lawn implements.
