Identity of North Houston Smoke Shop Robbers Sought

Crime Stoppers and the Houston Police Department’s Robbery Division need the public's assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

On Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 7:40 am, an unknown male walked into the Gulf Smoke Shop, located at 1385 W. Gulf Bank, in Houston, Texas. The male first acted like a customer and played on a slot machine inside the store. A short while later, the male opened the door (which has to be remotely opened by the clerk) and let in another unknown male, who was holding a handgun. Both males then approached the clerk while pointing the gun at her and demanded the money from the cash register. Once the suspects had the money, they then attempted to leave the store, but could not open the door, so one of the males kicked the door open. Houston PD #1271829-19

Note: Just prior to the robbery, the clerk overheard the male in the store talking on the phone stating, “Harry, Harry are you coming?”

Suspect descriptions: Suspect #1: Hispanic male, 20 to 21 years old, 5’4 to 5’6, 160 to 180 pounds, black hair, light complexion, white shirt, and blue jeans shorts, black Adidas sandals with white stripes.
Suspect #2: Hispanic male, 20 to 21 years old, 5’6 to 5’7, 130 pounds, light complexion, dark blue shirt, black pants, black shoes and black cap. Had a black handgun.
