NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Investigators with the Nacogdoches Police Department are seeking the public's help in locating a suspect in an aggravated robbery that occurred on Christmas Eve. The victim's vehicle, Polaris Ranger ATV, and wallet were stolen at gunpoint at a car wash on East Main Street.

According to a press release from Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers, two white males approached the victim as he was washing his vehicle at a car wash in the 4900 block of East Main Street in Nacogdoches. After they brandished a gun, they took off with the victim's vehicle, Polaris Ranger ATV, and wallet.

The vehicle and the ATV were found abandoned in the Woden area.

The suspects tried to use a canceled credit card belonging to the victim at a convenience store in Etoile. A credit card that was still active was used at multiple locations including Houston, Kingwood, Jasper, Crosby, Huffman, and Humble.

The suspects' vehicle is believed to be a blue Jeep Liberty. One of the pictures included with this story is of one of the suspects using the stolen credit card at a bank ATM in Kingwood.

According to Detective Jonathon Adams, the suspect pictured in the car was identified through a Crime Stoppers tip around 1 p.m. Tuesday. But the suspect pictured in the store has not yet been identified.

Adams said he used the Crime Stoppers tip which gave the name and matched it with various photographs of the suspect. He said a warrant will be issued for that man's arrest.

Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment in this case. All information is confidential and you will not be asked your name. You may call Crime Stopper at 936-560-INFO (4636) or send us a tip on the web at www.ncstips.com.
