Jan. 3, Vidor Police Chief Rod Carroll reported an aggravated robbery that had occurred at Super Stop #1 Convenience Store located at 20854 IH-10 in Vidor shortly after 4 a.m. According to Carroll, responding units checked the area of the robbery but were unable to locate the suspects.

“The clerk advised that three black males entered the store, with two of the males armed with semiautomatic pistols,” Carroll reported. “All three suspects were wearing masks. The suspects appear to be 5’8 to 5’10 with slender builds. Two of the suspects were wearing black slide sandals and one was wearing red slide sandals.”

Details from the scene of the crime allege that the suspects pointed their guns at the clerk and a customer that was in the store and threatened them. The suspects left the store after retrieving an undetermined amount of currency, apparently riding off in a light colored white or silver Mercury Mariner SUV that headed westbound on the IH-10 service road.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individuals responsible for this crime. The tipster may remain anonymous. Contact Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS (8477).
