In this week’s Special Crime Alert, Crime Stoppers is asking anyone with information about an aggravated robbery at the Valero convenience store to call, they are willing to pay up.
Around 3 a.m., Tuesday, July 23, Sheriff’s deputies were called to the Valero Corner Store in the 14100 block of Bissonnet. When they arrived on the scene they met with the clerk who said she kept the door locked during down time. However, when she heard someone knocking, she went over and opened the door for the man standing there.
She said the man who knocked at the door was a Hispanic male, but that once she opened the door, two black males rushed in wielding a pistol and demanding money. As deputies worked their way through the investigation, it was revealed through video that a white female was a part of the robbery team. According to authorities, she stood outside next to a dark-colored four-door sedan.
Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel described the gunman a black male, 6’ and weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing a dark shirt; dark pants and had a dark-colored toboggan-style hat with a blue handkerchief covering his face.
