LUFKIN — Investigators need your help identifying the suspect in a robbery.
The suspect, the tall, thin black male suspect shown in the above image taken from security cameras, was wearing a faded-brown t-shirt and blue jeans.
The suspect stole several packages of t-shirts and socks from a Lufkin-area store and, when an employee followed him outside and confronted him about the theft, the suspect displayed a large, folding-style knife and stated "I have a knife".
The suspect fled as a passenger in a black Suburban, described by the employee as older and run-down.
Also shown in the security video is a younger, black male wearing a blue t-shirt with the words “The Cartel” and an image of Stewie from The Family Guy TV show. This person was not involved in the robbery but was with the suspect when he entered the store and, after the robbery, he was picked up by the same Suburban that picked up the suspect.
