The Riverton Police Department is looking for a "bikini bandit" who robbed a truck stop at gunpoint Monday morning.
Police say a woman wearing a bikini bottom walked into the Pit Stop Travel Center on South Federal Boulevard around 4:00 a.m., pointed a gun at the clerk, stole $300 from the register and left on foot.
The clerk described the woman as Native American or Hispanic and about 5'2" tall. The clerk also told police that a woman who matched the same description had entered the store just a few minutes prior to the robbery, but left because she couldn't pay for a package of beef jerky.
Anyone with information about the armed robbery is asked to call the Riverton Police Department at (307) 856-4891.
