Surveillance Video Released In Robbery Investigation
HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Investigators with the Houston Police Department Robbery Division Friday morning released surveillance video of a suspect wanted in at least four robberies of businesses in Houston since late January.
“The suspect is described only as a white or Hispanic male, approximately 25 years of age with tattoos on his arms and upper back. He is believed to be driving a grey or brown Toyota Tundra pickup truck”, added HPD officials.
According to HPD, the suspect is responsible for robberies at the following times and locations:
January 27 at 3:25 p.m. – Sports Authority – 10225 Katy Freeway
January 28 at 10:30 p.m. – Walgreens – 8089 Westheimer
January 28 at 11:35 p.m. – Valero – 7100 Bellaire (surveillance video)
January 30 at 5:45 a.m. – Timewise – 11101 South Sam Houston Parkway
“In each incident, the suspect entered the store and brought an item to the counter as if he was making purchase,” added HPD.
“Once the cashier rang up the item and the register was opened, the suspect reached over and took the money from the cash register. In many of the cases, the suspect has threatened to have a gun and then fled in a Toyota truck. He is believed to be linked to as many as eight robberies in the Houston area.”
Anyone with information about these cases or the identity of the wanted suspect is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
