Gunman Robs San Clemente Ralphs

The store on Camino de los Mares is held up late Tuesday, officials say. Suspect may have fled in a Silver VW Beetle.

Sheriff's investigators were on the lookout Wednesday for a gunman who robbed a Ralphs supermarket in San Clemente.

A man in his 40s entered the supermarket in the 600 block of Camino de los Mares around 11:20 p.m. Tuesday, displayed a handgun and ordered a clerk to hand over an undisclosed amount of cash, said Orange County sheriff's Lt. Steve Gill.

The gunman fled the store and may have gotten into a silver Volkswagen Beetle, he said.

The robber was described as 5-foot-7 and 150 pounds.

I realize you've been trained to think that way. Brainwashing others on superstitions may make people feel better however it hasn't been known to accomplish anything. Did you fall on hard times (drugs, alcohol, prison, depression, etc) and "hit bottom" and become "born again" (as an alternative to suicide)? Or, did your parents "indoctrinate" you?

sorry our sheriff was too busy to protect Ralphs issuing tickets to trucks with ladders on top , and sighting parties with more than 8 people , if these stupid laws were suspended we might be safer while shopping for our food and gifts

Im sorry but due to all you of you arguing about the strict gun laws and other laws people are still getting mugged, robbed , killed, and i live in a multihousing development so I would appreciate it if some hack conservative would watch his tone. Im not a gun toting republican looking to resort in the old ways even though I have considered my safety in this town. I think that as I have been around the teens of this town and the "bad" crowd it upsets me. Look basically people are going to be who they want, be it religous freaks, or bank robbers but we are all still human. Its up to you whether or not you can come to terms with that. Our government has more important things like arguing over the happenings in connecticut rather than a few incidents in our great town of San Clemente. If your tired of the problems here, do something about it, maybe this town will change or maybe you'll just go down as this man did.

Stick to the real world and we might be interested in what your trying to say.

Omnipitent God chooses to NOT use his powers to simply forgive mankind, but instead implements a solution which requires that he impregnate a virgin teen girl in order to give birth to himself, so he can have himself slaughtered to save human being from a Hell he created. He then decides to communicate his scheme through conflicting accounts penned decades later by anonymous authors and sudjectivly handed down by flawed translators who can't even agree on the interpretation of "Virgin". Really this is what you base your life on? Hmmm...
