The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who was caught on camera robbing a convenience store.

The incident happened just before 7:30 p.m. on August 11 at the Bastrop Travel Center Shell Station at 1350 W SH 71.

Authorities say the suspect entered the store and walked around until all customers had left. He then pulled out a semi-automatic type handgun with a black frame and silver side and pointed it at the clerk and robbed the store.

The suspect arrived in a Silver Hyundai Santa Fe but authorities say the plate displayed lists a different vehicle.

The tag is a Texas license plate GFF-1095 and when authorities ran the plate it returned a White Honda Odyssey out of Conroe, Texas.

Officials say the vehicle was also seen with these plates on just after 9 p.m. on August 2 at the 7-11 store located at the corner of W. MLK Blvd. and Guadalupe St. in Austin.

The suspect is described as follows:

  • Hispanic male
  • Thin build
  • Clean shaven with a fade haircut
  • No visible scars/marks/tattoos
  • Late teens to early 20s
  • Last seen wearing white shoes, red shorts and a white t-shirt
