Lubbock Police continue to search for a man accused in an armed robbery Monday at Wal-mart. Now police know the suspects identity.
Tuesday afternoon they issued a warrant for 39-year-old Cruz Nunez. He escaped after allegedly showing a firearm to Wal-Mart employees. He led police on a chase, which resulted in the evacuation of about 80 people at CHR Solutions off the South Loop and Utica. One witness saw the suspect enter the building, but he apparently escaped before police could catch him.
26-year-old Laura Elizabeth De La Cruz was with Nunez during the shoplifting incident. She was arrested Monday.
If you have any information on the whereabouts of Cruz Nunez, police ask that you call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
