San Marcos police are looking for two men who stole more than $50,000 in flat-screen TVs and other consumer goods after apparently tying up and gagging a pair of warehouse workers two days before Christmas.
At about 11 p.m. Dec. 23, the suspects tied up two warehouse workers, holding one of them at knifepoint, at the 3pd Inc. distribution center at 1600 Clovis Barker Drive, according to a statement issued by Hays County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Wood, the law enforcement coordinator for Hays County Crime Stoppers. With the employees bound and gagged in a restroom, the suspects looted the warehouse, authorities say.
The suspects are described as black males in their mid-30s to early-40s, about 250 lbs and 5 feet, 10 inches tall. They were both wearing black hoodies and black pants, authorities say.
Hays County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that helps San Marcos police find the armed robbery suspects. Tips can be phoned in at 1-800-324-TIPS or submitted via the Crime Stopper’s website here.
Informants can offer their tips, and claim their reward, without being identified and without being forced to testify in court, Wood said. Authorities say surveillance cameras at the warehouse captured these images of the suspects:
