Texarkana Police Believe Two Armed Robberies are Connected
Texarkana Texas Police are looking for a suspect they believe targeted two different businesses in the past few days.
Authorities investigating the latest armed robbery that occurred Thursday morning at the Cash Store, located at 410 Walton Drive.
Officers were dispatched to the report of a robbery at the business at 10:10 this morning. The employee reported that a black male wearing a gas mask and a black hoodie entered the store. While pointing a pistol at the employee, he demanded the money from the cash register. He then also told the employee to give him the keys to her vehicle parked in the parking lot.
The suspect left in the victim’s silver 2005 Toyota Matrix and was last seen driving north on Walton Drive. The vehicle had Arkansas license plate 853-TOT and a vanity plate on the front that read “Cam Photography”.
It is believed that the suspect is the same person who robbed the Residence Inn (3900 Saint Michael Drive) early on Wednesday morning.
Anyone with information about either of these robberies or who sees the victim’s vehicle is asked to contact the Texarkana Texas Police Department at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
