EL PASO - Police are still looking for a man they say robbed a pawn shop in Central El Paso last month.
Police say a black man with a gun and a spider web tattoo on his hand held up the Cash America Pawn shop.
"The individual walked into the store and went into the firearm section and asked to see two different handguns. One was a .40 caliber and the other a .45 caliber. Once he looked at the weapons, this individual produced a handgun he had on him, threatening employees with the handgun, ordering them to the floor. Also he ordered customers at the store to the floor. He took the two handguns shown to him and fled the store," Officer Javier Sambrano said.
We're told the man got away in a Pearl-colored Cadillac.
