Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying a man who robbed an employee of The Lunch Box restaurant on North John Redditt Drive in Lufkin.

 

At 7AM January 5th, the robber casually entered the building, withdrew and prepared a concealed handgun, and threatened an employee who was readying the restaurant to receive morning customers.

 

The black male suspect was wearing a pom-style toboggan cap, dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, dark colored pants, and what appear to be flat-sole deck-style shoes, possibly grey fabric with white soles.  The handgun he displayed was a semi-automatic with a black frame and a silver slide.

 

Below, you can view portions of the videos.

 

The video angles make it difficult to identify the robber’s physical characteristics but someone reading this article or watching the video knows this criminal and can provide the information necessary to solve this crime.

 

Although the robber pointed the gun directly at the victim, no one was injured.  The criminal took money from the cash register and the employee’s iPhone before fleeing from the area.

1/13/2015 - Hudson Robbery
Click to Enlarge

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying a black male, and his unidentified driver, who robbed a convenience store on Highway 94 in Hudson.

The crime occurred just before 10:00 PM Monday, January 12, 2015, and cameras at the store captured video of the gun-toting male who entered the store and threatened the clerk.  Below, you can view the security camera videos.

The black male entered the store and asked for cigarettes.  While the clerk retrieved the merchandise, the robber drew a handgun from his pocket and demanded money from the cash register.  While the video does not show a second suspect, it appears that someone else was the driver in this crime and that person waited in the parking lot on a four-door car.

With cash and cigarettes in hand, the robber fled the store, jumped into the waiting car and fled the scene.

If you can identify the criminals, or if you can provide information concerning similar robberies, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or click the "Solve This Crime" link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a cash reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest.

12/29/2014 - Car Wash Burglars
Click to Enlarge

Around 4:00 AM October 29, two men burglarized the change machines at a car wash on Southwood Drive in Lufkin.

 

Security cameras at the car wash show that the burglars drove a dark-colored Dodge Ram extended-cab truck with several decals on its rear window and a bed full of tools and junk, including a ladder and a five-gallon bucket like the type used for paint.

 

The low light video makes it difficult to identify the suspects’ physical characteristics but the driver is balding and might shave the little hair that does grow on his head.  He was wearing a light-colored t-shirt with what could be an image of antlers on its back.  The passenger wore multi-color pants, possibly a camouflage pattern, a long-sleeve shirt, and a baseball cap with the bill turned to the side of his head.

 

Below, you can view portions of the security videos.

 

For an hour and a half the suspects worked to open the machines, first prying with tools and then bringing an acetylene torch from the truck to try cutting their way to the prize.  Something must have startled them because they left the torch and gas bottles behind when they fled from the scene.

 

If you can identify these criminals or provide information regarding this burglary, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to this crime.

12/22/2014 - Holiday Safety Tips


Crime Stoppers of Lufkin wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, and reminds you that a few simple precautions can help you have a safer and more enjoyable holiday.

 

Every time you leave your home, lock all doors and windows and activate your alarm system.  Use light timers to operate indoor and outdoor lighting in a random pattern to create the appearance that someone is home.  When you travel, do not advertise that your home will be vacant; tell only a trusted relative or friend that you will be away.  Use extreme caution when posting about your trip on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites; unless you are very selective about the people you “friend” and “follow”, you may be telling relative strangers that your home free for the taking.

 

Never leave your belongings visible in your vehicle when parked; this includes mobile phones, GPS units, charging cables, purses, shopping bags, and wrapped gifts. 

 

Keep purses and wallets on your person and hold them securely at all times.  The child seat of a shopping cart is not a safe place for your purse and valuables, even when tethered to the cart by the safety belt.  Limiting the amount of cash and the number of credit cards you keep with you will prevent you losing everything if your purse or wallet is lost or stolen. 

 

Keeping an up-to-date home inventory is simple and will help in the event of a burglary or insurance claim; use a camera to record the make, model, serial number, and detailed description of all your belongings (store a copy of the inventory outside of the house).

 

Remain aware of your surroundings at all times and immediately report suspicious people to law enforcement.  If you are the victim of a crime, regardless of how “minor” you think the incident is, immediately report the incident to law enforcement.

12/15/2014 - Car Lot Burglar
Click to Enlarge

4:00 AM October 09, a man rode a bicycle to a car lot located in the 200 block of South Medford Drive in Lufkin and burglarized the office.

 

The burglar parked his bike near the loop and approached the building on foot.  He kicked open the door to the office and was inside for about one minute before the alarm ran him off but that was enough time to go through many of the office cabinets.

 

Investigators know he was riding a bicycle and where he parked it because security cameras outside the building captured his approach and departure.  Below, you can view portions of the security videos.  Unfortunately, the videos provide only a glimpse of the man while he is near the building. 

 

The suspect has a light skin tone, short hair, and possibly facial hair.  He wore a short-sleeve, collared shirt, knee-length shorts, and a baseball cap, and he carried a small messenger-style bag. What appear to be tattoos are visible on his arms, his leg, and possibly on his neck.

 

This burglary is one of several at the car lot and the investigating officers have a name of a possible suspect but need help linking the burglar to the crime.

 

If you can identify this criminal and provide information linking him to this burglary, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to this crime.

12/8/2014 - Purse Thieves
Click to Enlarge

September 10th, a man and woman decided to help themselves to merchandise and an employee’s personal belongings at a store on Southwood Drive in Lufkin.

 

Initially, the woman stuffed her purse with drinks from the coolers and she and the man left the building.  While committing that crime, they must have noticed that the door to the employee break room was open because they came back into the store and went directly to the door of the break room.

 

The store’s security cameras did not capture the thieves’ conversation but they appear to have been pushing each other to be the one to enter the break room to take something else that belonged to neither of them.  Eventually, the room was entered and an employee’s purse was stolen.  The security video shows the man leaving the store with the purse and the victim’s credit card was fraudulently used four times within 24 hours of the theft -- three times at locations in Lufkin and once at a McDonald’s in Humble.

 

One suspect is an overweight black female with her hair pulled into a bun at the back of her head; she worn white shorts, a grey or dingy-white t-shirt, and flip-flops or house shoes.  The other suspect is a black male with short-cut hair; he worn white shorts, tennis shoes, and a white, Southpole brand t-shirt with a black, winged skull logo across its front.

 

Below, you can view portions of the store’s security videos.

 

If you can identify these suspects, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest related to this crime.

12/1/2014 - Laundromat Looter

Crime Stoppers needs your help identifying another thief.

 

November 14, a customer left her wallet containing $280 cash on top of a change machine at a washateria on Abney Avenue in Lufkin.  When she realized her mistake, she returned to retrieve the wallet but found that her cash had been stolen. 

 

Security cameras at the washateria captured video of another customer stealing the cash.  Below, you can view portions of the security video showing the suspect and her vehicle.

 

The suspect is a white, possibly Hispanic, female with dark hair pulled into a ponytail.  She wore glasses, blue jeans, and a blue or purple Hollister brand pullover hoodie.  She drove a small, silver, four-door car and brought several blankets or comforters to the washateria.

 

To keep from leaving fingerprints on the wallet, she covered her hand with her sleeve when she tried to shove the wallet behind the change machine.

 

Like other “found money” theft incidents previously profiled by Crime Stoppers, this case doesn’t involve a huge sum of money but whether you find several hundred or several thousand dollars, you return it – you don’t conceal it from the owner and keep it for yourself.  Unfortunately, this type crime is far too common; valuable property dropped or mistakenly left behind in a public place is stolen rather than returned.  No one wants to lose personal property and we certainly don’t want it stolen from us.

 

If you can identify this suspect, call Crime Stoppers at (936) 639-TIPS or click the “Solve this Crime” link below to submit a tip.  All calls and tips are anonymous and Crime Stoppers may pay a reward for information that leads to an arrest related to this crime.
