Two armed robberies occurred over the weekend and all suspects are still at large.
On Saturday at 12:16 a.m. the 7-Eleven at 2423 Marsha Sharp Freeway was held up at gunpoint.
The suspect entered the store with a handgun and demanded money from the clerk. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, between 20 to 30 years old, approximately 5'05" tall and 150 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black and red windbreaker and black beanie cap. Lubbock Police say the suspect possibly left the scene in a white Jeep Cherokee.
The second robbery occurred Sunday night just after 11 p.m. Three black males entered Mr. Puffs Smoke Shop at 2510 MLK Boulevard. The owner, Blondell Lewis, said he and a regular customer were in the shop at the time of the robbery and were forced to the ground. Lewis said all the money was taken out of the register.
The first suspect is described as a black male, approximately 6'00"-6'03" tall with an average build. He wore a desert camouflage military uniform and a black mask. The second suspect is described as a black male, approximately 5'09"-5'11" tall, also with an average build. He wore the same outfit as the first suspect. The third suspect is described as a black male, about 5'08"-5'10" tall also with an average build. He wore a black and white skeleton costume with a skeleton mask. Lewis believes the thieves were underage.
"I think they were kids," said Lewis. "The oldest one looks about the age of 18. The rest of them stayed quiet, so when they stay quiet like that, it usually is a kid."
The robberies are still under investigation. If you have any information about any of these suspects, you are asked to call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
