Armed Thief Steals 4 Copies of 'Titanic'

A knife-wielding man stole four copies of the movie "Titanic" from a Ventura video rental store Tuesday, police said.

The robber entered Video Tyme at 2733 E. Main St. about 3 p.m. and grabbed the cassettes, Ventura Police Sgt. Gary McCaskill said. When a clerk confronted the robber, he pulled out a knife and then fled.

No one was injured.

The robber was described as Latino, 5 feet 10 inches, 165 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue jeans and a white flannel shirt, McCaskill said.

Anyone with information should call police at 339-4416.
