Robbery And Attempted Robbery By Same Man Minutes Apart

East Texas law enforcement are on the lookout for a man who's a suspect in both a robbery and an attempted robbery early Saturday evening.

Law enforcement officials tell us that a man attempted to rob the Redland Grocery Store on highway 59 just north of Lufkin. He didn't get away with anything there, but a few minutes later, the same suspect is believed to have robbed the Expo Inn in Lufkin and there he did get away with an undetermined amount of cash.

The suspect is described as a white male in his early 50's, heavy set with scruffy hair and a beard. He was last seen driving off in a 2001 silver Honda, license plate number l60-TDL.

If you have any information, please contact your local law enforcement officials.
