Gassing up on cash

A gunman lifted $600 from a Flatlands Avenue Mobil gas station after he “cased the joint” after a trip to the bathroom, investigators said.

Investigators were told that the gunman entered the “On the Run” station between East 84th and East 85th streets at 1 am on April 25, claiming that he had to use the toilet.

The man did his business and left the station — but re-entered within minutes, pulled a gun and forced the employee to empty the cash register.

He then ran out with the loot, leaving the victim unharmed.

Cops are asking anyone with information regarding this robbery to come forward.

Calls can be made to the 69th Precinct detective squad at (718) 257-6315. All calls will be kept confidential.
