A King City market was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday night, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. The robbery was reported at Orchard Market, a small store on Teague Avenue, at 10:22 p.m., the sheriff’s office said. The store clerk told investigators that a customer came into the store first and appeared to be casing the business. Just after he left, a suspect in a ski mask came in with a large black handgun.
He demanded money from the register and also took the victim’s iPhone, the sheriff’s office said. The suspect, described as between 18 and 19 years old and standing about 5 feet 3 inches tall with a thin build, got into a gold 1990-1993 Honda with tinted windows. The suspect then drove into the vineyard north of the market. Sheriff’s deputies checked the vineyard but could not find the suspect, the sheriff’s office said.
