Police are searching for a man who allegedly robbed the Monarch Grove Winery tasting room in Grover Beach shortly after noon Sunday while wearing an "old man mask" and Elvis wig.
The man showed a black semi-automatic pistol to a tasting room employee before binding the victim's wrists with duct tape and confining the person to the firm’s restroom, according to a Grover Beach Police Department news release. He then stole about $400 in cash.
The robber is described as a male in his 30s, about 5-foot-8 and weighing 140 pounds. He was wearing a tight fitting mask, black wig, tan cargo pants, a blue buttoned long-sleeve shirt, blue latex gloves and brown round-framed glasses.
