Lufkin Crime Stoppers are asking for the public's help in identifying the person who robbed a Lufkin general store last week.
Just after 10:00 am on Monday, April 2, the white male suspect entered a store in the 700 block of South Timberland Drive in Lufkin, standing in the check out line with other customers until he reached the cash register. An employee rang up the man's purchase and when the employee opened the cash register, the man grabbed the cash drawer and ran from the store. The employee's finger was injured.
The employee then called the police, but to her surprise, the suspect came back into the store, having left his car key on the counter. The suspect grabbed his key and then fled in a black, two-door Chevy Caviler. The picture of the vehicle was obtained by a police vehicle that was pursued him.
The suspect is white, male, and bald with a dark-colored goatee with numerous tattoos on both arms.
