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.
