AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for January 13, 2014

A red flag warning is in effect for San Diego County. Wind gusts over 50 miles per hour will scour San Diego County and humidity as low as five percent come together to create the dangerous conditions. The warning will stay in effect until Wednesday night.

Chula Vista Police are on the lookout for three suspects from two separate robberies of one 7-11 and one clerk … all just hours apart. The first robbery was last night at 11:37 PM and the suspects are described as a man and woman both in their 20’s. The man is thought to be 5′ 10″, thin, wearing a black hoodie, black jeans, and he had a shot gun fitted with a pistol grip. The woman is said to also be 5′ 10 wearing black pants but a black shirt.

Then the second robbery came at 4:17 AM. The same clerk was working. He told authorities that he thinks it’s the same male suspect from the earlier. I guess the woman stayed home?? The robber even used what is thought to be the same gun. But this time he had a light blue bandanna covering his face.
