Crime Stoppers to help find store robber

Hays County Crime Stoppers are helping the San Marcos Police Department (SMPD) try to find the gunman in a September convenience store robbery.

At about 12:10 a.m. on Sept. 2, an armed man robbed the Quix Convenience Store at 1004 North Interstate-35. The unknown black or Hispanic male entered the store, pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at the clerk and demanded money from the cash register.

Fearing for her life, the clerk gave the gunman an undisclosed amount of cash. The robber took the money, ran from the store and entered the passenger side of a small, silver SUV, possibly a Chrysler Pacifica, with newer-style seven-digit Texas license plates.

The vehicle left the store in an unknown direction. There was no description of the getaway car driver.

The armed robber was described as a black or Hispanic male, 5-feet-8 to six-feet tall, average build, wearing a plain black hoodie, a light colored bandana or cloth covering his face, light colored gloves, long denim shorts, ankle high socks and running shoes.

Although in-store surveillance cameras photographed the armed robber, SMPD investigators have not been able to identify him or the getaway vehicle.

Anyone with information that could help the SMPD solve the felony crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 324-TIPS. Information leading to the arrest and indictment of the suspect(s), will make the provider eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.  All calls are totally confidential and all callers will remain anonymous. Callers do not have to give their names or testify in court.
