Houston Police Department Robbery Division investigators are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying several suspects believed responsible for at least 14 robberies of businesses throughout north and northeast Houston in the past 30 days.

The suspects are described only as two to three black males wearing hooded coats or jackets to cover their heads, designer jeans with white stiching on the back pocket and a long gold chain necklace.  They are armed with a revolver with a red laser light attached.  They are driving a maroon Lincoln and a gray or black Chevrolet Impala or Malibu. A surveillance video clip and photos of the suspects are attached to this release.

The suspects are linked to robberies at:

  • 9421 Mesa – Subway and an EZ Loan Store
  • 9415 Mesa – Game Stop  
  • 3415 Orlando – Boostmobil
  • 5540 Airline – Boostmobil
  • 6515 Tidwell – Cricket
  • 3301 E. Tidwell – Cricket
  • 7208 N. Shepherd – Cricket
  • 8703 MLK – Cricket
  • 2920 Tidwell – EZ Money
  • 5910 Scott – Club Cellular
  • 133 Little York – Gold Depot
  • 2030 Little York – Paisono Cricker

In all cases, the suspects enter the business and pretend to be customers before robbing the business.  Usually the suspect is alone, but is sometimes accompanied by one or two other suspects.  The revolver with a red laser light is consistently used.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of these suspects is asked to call the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
