OCEANO, Calif. - The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office is searching for a man who robbed an Oceano gas station at gunpoint.

It happened Monday morning around 8:50 a.m. at the Oceano Market Valero Gas Station on the 1700 block of Front Street.

Deputies responded to the gas station after a man entered the business, brandished a firearm and demanded money from the register. The clerk cooperated and the man left the business with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect has been described as a Hispanic male, with an average build, wearing dark blue or black clothing and sunglasses.

The sheriff's office says the suspect was seen getting into a White Honda coupe with another man and heading south towards Los Berros Road.

The incident is under investigation. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff's Office at 805-781-4550.
