Location: 11900 Leopard Street
Offense: Aggravated Robbery (PC 29.03 First Degree Felony)
Case Number: 1407220011
A 28 year old female store clerk called police after the business was robbed by three suspects one of which had a handgun. She said that a young Hispanic male, 17-18 years old, wearing a red shirt, came in and attempted to purchase a tobacco product but the clerk refused since the male did not have identification to verify his age. He left the store only to return a few minutes later to ask again and he was again turned down.
The clerk became suspicious when he returned a third time and purchased a beverage. While he was in the store, two more males entered, one wearing a dark jacket, a ski mask and armed with a handgun, demanding money. The third male jumped over the counter and removed money from the register and all three then left the store. It is unknown if the male suspect who was attempting to purchase items was with the two other suspects, however he fled and officers need to speak to him. He is described as being 5’6”-5’7” tall, about 130 to 150 pounds with black hair. The suspect armed with the weapon was described as a Hispanic male, unknown age, about 5’7” to 5’10”, 140 to 160 pounds, wearing a dark shirt and khaki pants. The suspect who jumped the counter and grabbed the money is described as a white male unknown age height or weight, last seen wearing a black shirt with white writing on it, khaki shorts and a bandana.

As officers approached the female she nearly lost her balance and fell and when she noticed the officers, she dropped two 16 oz. Lone Star beer cans. Officers contacted her, and they immediately detected a very strong odor of alcohol coming from her person and her breath and she refused to let go of the carrier. The 20 month old child was crying and officers had to pull the females right hand off the carrier`s handle in order for her to let loose of it. Four other witnesses told officers they saw the female staggering while walking and drinking beer and they were concerned for the safety of the female and the child. CCFD EMS responded to check on the child and the female who was identified as the child’s grandmother was arrested.
