Police are looking for a man who robbed a store in Santa Barbara Tuesday afternoon.

It happened at about 1 p.m. at a smoke shop on the 4000 block of Calle Real.

Police say a man wearing a disguise and possibly armed with a gun got away with an unknown amount of cash.

It's believed the robber ran off before possibly getting into a black Mercedes.

Smoke shops are not considered an essential business under the governor's orders, according to police.
