    Palo Alto: Video game console heist from Fry's Electronics turns into armed robbery  
     
    A security guard who tried to stop a man from stealing a video game console from Fry's Electronics in Palo Alto on Wednesday found himself instead staring down the barrel of a gun, police said.  
     
    The theft-turned-armed robbery was reported at about 3:49 p.m. According to police, two men entered the store at 340 Portage Ave., grabbed three video game consoles worth $1,200, and ran for the door.  
     
    One of the men made it outside with two of the consoles, but the second man was blocked at the exit by a male security guard in his 40s, police said. That's when the second man allegedly reached into his waistband, removed a silver revolver and pointed it at the security guard.  
     
    The security guard backed away and the man ran outside with the third console, police said.  
     
    The men then got into a dark-colored, four-door sedan and drove away westbound on Portage Avenue toward El Camino Real, police said. They remained at large Wednesday night.  
     
    The security guard described the men as Hispanic, between 25 and 30 years old, and about 5 feet 8 inches tall. They both had short black hair and were wearing jeans. The man with the gun was wearing a dark-colored T-shirt; the other man was wearing a white T-shirt.  
     
    Police released a surveillance photo of the men. The security guard may also work with police to produce a sketch of the armed man.  
     
    Anyone with information about the armed robbery is asked to call the city's 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413.

    What a bummer, but I'm glad nobody got hurt. I use to visit the store very often and I consider their Store Manager (if it's still Damian) a friendly acquaintance of mine. That store is very challenging because it's considered a slow store and the aisles are very narrow; the area gets really dusty and they have statues throughout the store to maintain. I've seen Randy Fry visit the store, get on a ladder, and swipe his finger on top to check for dust. The only thing that store has good, in my opinion, is that they are in a wealthy area, and so customers tend to invest more into higher GP items more easily then "ad" stores such as the other Bay Area stores.
