On Thursday, December 12, 2019, at 1:31 AM, Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff Department, responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Chevron, located in the 72-200 block of Ramon Road., Thousand Palms.  A Hispanic male adult, later identified as Adrian Salinas, 24 of Baldwin Park, entered the business armed with a knife and demanded money from the cash register.  Salinas took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the area on foot.  No employees or patrons were injured during the robbery.
