Police are looking for the people who stole a brand new car from a dealership employee at a Pueblo gas station Tuesday afternoon. 

Police said the carjacking happened around 4 p.m. at the Shell at Highway 50 and Morris Avenue. Police said a Pueblo Toyota employee was fueling up a brand new Toyota Corolla when a young man approached him, brandished a handgun, and demanded the keys. He then got into the driver’s seat, and another man entered the car on the passenger side. They drove away headed southbound on Morris Avenue. 

Police later found the car unoccupied on Pueblo Boulevard near the Arkansas River. 

Police said the suspects arrived at the Shell station in a stolen car. That car was also recovered and returned to its owner. 

The suspects are still on the run. They are described as Hispanic men, both about 5 feet 7 inches tall. One of them had a goatee. A surveillance image of the suspect accused of getting into the passenger seat is available above.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 719-553-2502, or Crime Stoppers at 719-542-STOP (7867).
