Suspect in Robbery Captured on Camera During Theft

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

On Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 12:21 pm, an unknown male entered the Puff N Buzz smoke shop, located at 5009 Antoine, in Houston, Texas. The male walked up to the employee, pulled out a handgun and demanded the money from the cash register. The employee complied with the suspect and gave him the money from the cash drawer. The suspect then walked out of the store and fled in a Maroon newer model Toyota Camry. Houston PD #1056535-20 

A follow up investigation of surveillance cameras in the area of the robbery revealed the license plate to the vehicle. It was then discovered that the same suspect had stolen a package from the 8000 block of Livingston a few days prior to the robbery using the same vehicle. The suspect in this robbery was captured on a Ring camera from the theft. Houston PD #1013475-20

The license plate to the vehicle returns to a rental company and the suspect’s identity has not yet been determined based on a follow up investigation. 

Suspect description: White male, 32 to 40 years old, 6’1 to 6’2, 150 to 175 pounds, light colored hair, tattoos throughout body, white shirt and blue jeans.
