Robbery
Title
3290 Austin Bluffs Parkway
Location
On January 14, 2017 at approximately 8:54 PM, the Colorado Springs Police Department received a 911 call reference a robbery at the Diamond Shamrock located at 3290 Austin Bluffs Parkway. The reporting party was a customer in the store who was passed a note by the store clerk as she was leaving. When the reporting party read the note in her vehicle the note indicated that a man with a gun was outside of the building and she was to play it cool, and not react. The reporting party immediately called 911 and remained in the area to provide updated information from a safe distance. The reporting party told the 911 call taker that the clerk was raising his hands in the air and gave a description of a male in the store as a possible suspect. The 911 call prompted a Code 3 emergency response from several Stetson Hills officers who quickly responded. Upon police arrival the clerk immediately stated that he was bored and passed the note to the customer as a prank. The store clerk was charged with False Reporting and released.
