Secret Witness is offering a reward in the amount of $1,500.00 for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a 7-11 convenience store at 5700 Sun Valley Blvd. Sun Valley, NV.
On August 16, 2023, at approximately 1:40 a.m. a male suspect of unknown race entered the 7-11 convenience store at the above location and brandished what appeared to be a black small to mid-sized semi-automatic pistol while demanding money and cigarettes. After a brief verbal exchange, the suspect fled the store on foot with approximately $90.00 and a carton of cigarettes, running eastbound on 7th Avenue in Sun Valley. Surveillance video of the scene showed the suspect arriving at the store approximately five minutes prior to the robbery and waiting outside for customers to leave prior to entering the store. The suspect was wearing a black ski mask with eye holes that looked like he had made the mask himself. Preliminary information indicates the suspect is approximately six feet tall with a medium to larger build.
