MCTXSheriff Searching for Wal-Mart Aggravated Robbery Suspect
On October 16, 2019, at about 2:41 A.M., Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Wal-Mart Supercenter located at 3040 College Park Dr. The Woodlands, Texas in reference to an aggravated robbery.
Once on location Deputies learned that a white male suspect entered the business wearing a dark-colored hoodie, green shorts, black & white tennis shoes with black socks. He was described as being between 5’7”-5’11” tall. The suspect approached a female employee, pointed a handgun at her and forced her into an area of the store containing a safe. The suspect demanded the employee open the safe and provide him with money. While doing so, the employee activated her two-way radio alerting other employees who heard the commotion. The victim’s co-workers approached the room to check the victim’s welfare, at which time the suspect then ran away. While the suspect was departing from the store, he fired a single shot into the ceiling before fleeing on foot. No money was obtained by the suspect.
Responding officers with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Conroe Police Department, Montgomery County Precinct Three Constables Office, Shenandoah Police Department canvassed the area for the suspect and a canine was deployed as well. A thorough search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
