BREAKING NEWS - Lufkin Police Investigating Bomb Scare On Raguet Street

Lufkin Police have blocked off a portion of Raguet Street this morning after a robbery at the LaUnica restaurant. 

According to police, a suspect entered the restaurant this morning around eight o'clock and demanded money.   Employees gave the man a small amount.  He then told them he had a bomb in a box that he had in his possession and left it there.

An arrest has since been made, and the suspect has told police that the box in question is empty.  However, police say they are not taking any chances and are now waiting for a bomb squad from Ft. Polk in Louisiana to arrive on the scene to check out the box.

We'll have more information for you as the situation develops.
