On April 17, 2012, HCSO deputies responded to a call at a cell phone store located in the 15000 block of Ella Blvd. The employee advised that at approximately 4:20 p.m. a black female entered the store asking questions about cell phones, then left the store. Moments later the female (suspect #1) along with two black males (suspects #2 and #3) entered the store. One male suspect began asking questions about the cell phones then pointed a gun at the victim. The other male suspect also pointed a gun at the victim, walked around the service counter and removed cash from the register. The victim was then taken to the back of the store by one of the male suspects. At this time, a customer entered the store. Suspect #3 pointed his gun at the customer and took money out of his hand. All three suspects then fled the store on foot.
Surveillance cameras captured images of the suspects entering and exiting the store.
Suspect #1 is described as a black female, 17-20 years of age, weighing approximately 100 to 110 lbs. wearing a small black elastic cap on her head, unknown type tattoo on her upper left arm.
Suspect #2 is described as a black male, 16 to 17 years of age, standing 5'8" to 5'9" tall and weighing approximately 140 to 150 lbs. Suspect was wearing a black baseball cap with the logo "Hussle Trees" on it.
Suspect #3 is described as a black male, 18 to 20 years of age, standing 5'9" to 5'10" tall and weighing approximately 150 to 160 lbs. Suspect had a short black goatee and a lip ring on the right side of his lower lip. Suspect was wearing a black hat with the logo "P", grey hoodie with "Texans" logo and tan shorts.
HCSO investigators believe this group may be responsible for at least a dozen robberies in north Harris County since March 2012.
