Two Lufkin convenient stores were robbed last week and investigators need your assistance to identify the suspects.
On December 8th, an unidentified suspect robbed a convenient store located in the 3100 block of Atkinson Drive in Lufkin. On December 12th, an unidentified suspect robbed a convenient store located in the 1900 block of North Timberland Drive in Lufkin.
In both instances, a suspect entered into the convenient stores just before 9:00 P.M., used a handgun to threaten employees of the stores, and demanded that an employee givehim money from the cash register. The employees complied with the suspect's demands and the suspect fled on-foot from the stores.
The suspect in both crimes was described as a black male, approximately nineteen years old, average build, wearing a black hooded-jacket, and dark blue or black jeans. His face was covered with a blue bandana.
Police believe the suspect was dropped off and picked up in a white Dodge Caravan.
