Hollister Police Chief Carlos Reynoso told BenitoLink nobody involved was injured. He added police do not release how much money or merchandise was stolen as it’s part of their investigation. 

Reynoso said the model of the firearm used in the incident is unknown and that they only released one image of the suspect, which was taken from the security camera. 

“Anyone who was in the area before or after the listed robbery is asked to call the police if they noticed anything or anyone suspicious in the area,” he said.
