Hays County authorities are seeking a man who entered a Dripping Springs convenience store twice within the span of hours, robbing it on his second visit.
Both times, the suspect’s image was captured on store security camera, as was a dark-colored sedan he had apparently parked at a gasoline pump.
The Hays County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect robbed the Corner Store, at the intersection of U.S. 290 and Sawyer Ranch Road, around 3 a.m on Wednesday, April 8 and demanded money. The HCSO did not say whether he displayed or indicated that he had a weapon.
He is described as a white male in his early 20s with a husky build and “dirty blonde” hair.
The first time he entered the store he wore a blue Hawaiian shirt. The second time, a dark long-sleeved shirt. The vehicle was described as an “early model black Honda Accord.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Det. A. McLeod, firstname.lastname@example.org.

The same store was robbed early on Christmas Day, 2019. Less than two weeks later, John Robert Garrison, 39, of Wimberley was apprehended without incident at a North Austin hotel by Austin Police and the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.
Garrison had been released from Hays County Jail Dec. 17 on a charge of driving with an invalid license brought by the Kyle Police Department.
