Texarkana Texas Police are searching for this suspect in a Wednesday afternoon robbery at the Owl’s Nest Flea Market on Texas Boulevard. Take a look at these photos and if you can identify this man, contact T.T.P.D..
The robbery occurred Wednesday September 14 at approximately 5:55 p.m.. We spoke to Becky Lowery at the Owl’s Nest Flea Market. She was on duty along with an employee, and there were also 3 customers in the building other than the suspect. Ms. Lowery explained,
He came into the store at about 5:30 p.m. and was browsing, he spoke to customers and employees and seemed to just be shopping around. He came to the front of the store and told us he was interested in a watch at the back of the store. I asked him which booth and got a key for the display case and walked to the back of the store with him. I unlocked the case and got the watch out and we noticed there was no price tag. So, I locked the case back and I went to the front of the store to call the vendor for the price. He then came up to the front and said he found the price tag with the charger that they were in the case. It was a bluetooth watch and it was $30. I asked him if he wanted to buy it and he said yes. He wanted to continue to browse, so I went up front. Checked out a couple of other customers, then it was almost 6:00 p.m.. I walked to the back of the store and didn’t see anyone so I sort of yelled “Time to check out we are about to close”, but nobody came up front. We went to the back of the store and noticed an open door. When we saw the door was open we looked around, and watched the security video. He stole a number of laptop computers, notepads, and other electronics.
