A surveillance image was released Wednesday in hopes of generating tips that help La Habra police track down a gunman who has robbed the same gas station twice.

The most recent robbery occurred about 8 p.m. Sunday at a Shell station at 101 E. Imperial Highway, according to La Habra police Sgt. Jose Quirarte.

The robber, brandishing a semi-automatic handgun, demanded cash from an employee and fled with about $200, Quirarte said.

The same business was robbed Aug. 31, and police believe it was the same suspect.

He’s described as 45 to 55 years old, about 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, and weighing about 200 to 230 pounds, with a dark complexion, Quirarte said.

In Sunday’s heist, he was wearing white pants, a black-and-blue, long- sleeved shirt, brown fedora hat, white gloves and sunglasses, Quirarte said.

Anyone with information about his identity was asked to call police at (562) 383-4300 or use the Tip411 smartphone application.
