LAKE ELSINORE - A search was underway today for a man who held up a store just north of Lake Elsinore, stealing money, cigarettes -- and the checkout clerk's wristwatch.

It happened about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday at a convenience store in the 23000 block of Temescal Canyon Road, just off Interstate 15, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Sgt. Todd Pauling said a man walked into the store and asked for a pack of cigarettes, but when it came time to pay, instead of reaching for his wallet, the suspect pulled up his shirt and showed Advertisement

He was described as Hispanic, in his early to mid-30s, about 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds, with a light mustache. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt, black cap and dark gray sweat pants.
