Masked Man Continues to Run from the Law

Lufkin police are still trying to catch up with a man suspected of robbing a Lufkin restaurant at gunpoint.

Police found the man thanks to a Crimestoppers tip, but now, he can't be located. He was scheduled to take a lie detector test at the police station last week, but never showed up.

Investigators said he emptied the cash register at Pizza Hut on Timberland and made the employees get into the walk-in freezer. They were able to get out from the inside.

The gunman is a black man who was dressed in black pants and a black jacket during the robbery. He was also wearing a black ski mask.

If you have information about this crime, call the Lufkin Police Department at (936) 633-0356.
