Sheriffs deputies have spent much of this evening looking for a convenience store robber in Spanish Springs.
'The Terribles' store at the intersection of Pyramid and La Posada was robbed around 8 c'clock tonight.
Deputies say a gunman entered the store, pulled out his weapon and ordered the clerk to the floor.
He then emptied the register and fled with an unknown amount of cash into the neighborhood behind the nearby Savemart Center.
The clerk described the robber as either a white or hispanic male, close to 5-10 in height, wearing a blue hoodie and blue jeans.
His weapon is only described as a chrome colored handgun.
Deputies used a search dog in the area but did not find the gunman.
If you have any information on this robbery you are urged to contact the Washoe County Sheriffs Department.
