April 25, 2013 (La Mesa)—Three robbers, one armed with a handgun, held up the Los Piños Taco Shop at 5660 Lake Murray Boulevard in La Mesa last night at approximately 9:52 p.m. They remain at large despite a search by the Sheriff’s ASTREA helicopter and a canine unit.
All three are described as African-American men in their late teens or early 20s, wearing bandanas over their faces. Each was approximately 5’10 and weighs around 165 pounds. One wore eye glasses and another had a dark gray hooded sweatshirt. All wore dark clothing.
