Lifelong POS, been in and out of jail. A parole officer or probation officer should recognized this dude. A gas station at his age, hmmmm PUKE. Most likely misses his girlfriend back in the big-house.

Totally agree, Stephen!! I am always amazed that in this age of HD, we can't do better than this!!

I've always wondered about this too and the banks have even worse cameras. Why not put a HD camera directly where the person comes up to the teller?

The people who own and operate Citgo are wonderful people and I am glad he didn't get a DIME off of THEIR hard work. What a loser, a grown man trying to rob gas stations for his next fix probably. Get a job and be a productive citizen like everyone else. Must be really proud of himself! Scum.
