Lufkin Police release video of convenience store robbery

LUFKIN, TX (News Release) -

Angelina County Sheriff's Office Investigators need your help identifying a male suspect involved in the robbery of a Lufkin-area convenience store.

Just before 2:00 on the morning of Friday, December 09th, the male suspect shown here arrived at a convenient store located in the 3600 block of Highway 69 North in Lufkin.  The suspect was a passenger in an older-model, four-door, long-wheel-base Ford truck, possibly two-tone blue-in-color.  The suspect made a purchase and left the area in the Ford truck.

The black male suspect had short-cut hair, a thin, chin-strap style beard, and a thin mustache, and he was wearing a dark color, Aéropostale brand hooded sweatshirt with a white "19 AERO 87" graphic on its front. 

A short time later, the suspect returned to the store, this time wearing a knit cap and sunglasses, placed a piece of candy on the cash register counter, and handed the store clerk a dollar bill.  When the clerk opened the cash register drawer, the suspect displayed a handgun and demanded the clerk give him all of the money from the register. 

The clerk slammed shut the register and the suspect, fled from the store.

The clerk's refusal to meet the suspect's demands could have had dire consequences; thankfully, the suspect chose instead to flee on-foot without the store's money.

If you can identify this suspect or provide any information concerning this crime, call Crime Stoppers of Lufkin at (936) 639-TIPS or submit an anonymous tip at www.LufkinCrimeStoppers.com.  You never have to give your name and Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward of up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest related to this crime.
