Suspects Wanted in a Series of Pawn Shop Robberies

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

On Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at about 12:00 pm, a white Chevy Malibu reversed into a parking space in front of the EZ Pawn, located at 5419 Antoine Drive, in Houston, Texas.  Four unknown males exited the vehicle while concealing their hands and faces with gloves and face coverings.  One male held the door open and the other three entered the pawnshop.  The first male to enter had a handheld sledgehammer and started to hit the glass repeatedly.  The second male had a crowbar and hit the other end of the same case repeatedly.  The glass was durable and the third male started to pull the glass away from the case to access the display case and take the items inside.  The first male then stole things in the open around the shop.  After a few minutes, the males ran out, got back into the white car, and fled the scene.
