On Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 10:08 PM, a male placed an order at the drive-thru at the McDonald’s, located at 5505 Lockwood, in Houston, Texas. The male then drove up to the drive-thru window in a newer model blue sedan.

The suspect then got back into the vehicle and fled the scene. HPD case #957659-17
