LUFKIN — Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wants your help identifying the suspects in two theft investigations.
Investigators have not found a connection between these crimes or suspects, but both cases involve young men stealing beer from Lufkin-area convenience stores.
The suspect in theft number one is a white male with short-cut brown hair wearing a black t-shirt with a white Young and Reckless logo on its front, blue jeans, and white, Adidas tennis shoes. Once in the store, he moved directly to the beer cooler, grabbed a 30-pack of Coors Light, and then ran from the store without making payment. This suspect appears to have a tattoo on his right forearm, and he fled the area in a light grey extended-cab Ford Ranger.
The suspect in theft number two is a white or Hispanic male wearing a black toboggan, white t-shirt, dark, hooded jacket with white text on its front, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. He entered the store and moved directly to the beer cooler, grabbed a 30-pack of Bud Light, and headed for the door but stashed the beer when he saw employees watching him. After wondering through the store for several minutes, he picked up the stashed beer and left the store without making payment. This suspect fled the area with several other males in a black, two-door car, possibly an older Honda Civic.
Crime Stoppers chose to profile these crimes as a warning to other would-be thieves. Punishments for these thefts can be stiff, and prior theft convictions can enhance the penalty to a Felony.
