The Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrator involved in a robbery case.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office received a call at 3:43 a.m. Friday, April 8 concerning a robbery at the Kroger Kwik Shop, located at 11565-A Highway 6 near West Airport Boulevard in northeast Fort Bend County.
The store clerk said a black male, 6-feet tall and weighing about 240 pounds, entered the building wearing a black sweatshirt, gray sweat pants and a black baseball cap with a reddish bill. He asked to use the restroom, and when he came out of the restroom, he made a gesture suggesting he was carrying a weapon. The clerk saw a silver metal handle under the subject’s sweat pants.
The subject demanded money from the safe. The clerk could not open the safe, so the subject took about $100 from the cash register, three Newport cigarette cartons and an American Express prepaid credit card valued at about $200.
The subject was last seen walking toward some nearby apartments.
There were no injuries reported.
