Armed robber caught on tape at a Madera Valero gas station

FRESNO, Calif.

The pictures were recorded at a Valero gas station on south Madera Avenue. That gas station was robbed twice in three days last week.

Video images show the robber during the second hold-up. At one point he takes off his shirt and reveals a distinctive tattoo on his upper back.

He uses a bandana to try and cover his face, but the cameras were still able to capture images of him. It's unclear how much money the suspect got away with.

There were two other armed robberies in Madera in the last few days … one at a fast food drive thru and another at a pharmacy on Monday. Anyone with information about any of the crimes is asked to contact the Madera Police Department.
