Police in Texas are looking for three individuals who they say robbed a food store in North West Houston. This event reportedly occurred August 24 in the early afternoon. Theft and property crimes of this nature are not taken lightly by law enforcement officials. When caught, the individuals believed responsible will likely face a number of significant penalties if convicted.
According to reports, two males entered the AM Seafood store on West Gulf Bank Road and requested that the clerk on duty lower the price on the drinks that they wanted. When the employee refused the request, the men allegedly took the drinks without paying. When the clerk went outside to check their license plate number, one of the men is said to have pulled a gun and shot the glass on the storefront.
During this incident, another patron who was still inside the store is believed to have taken the tip jar on the clerk’s counter. This individual walked out without any incident. Police have released pictures of those said to be involved. Anyone with information about this event is being asked to contact the authorities.
Those in Texas who are convicted of theft and property crimes may face jail/prison time, the payment of fines and a number of other consequences. While the men involved in this most recent event have yet to be located, when they are, prosecuting attorneys are likely to seek the maximum punishment allowed under the law. In order to help their cases, these individuals can turn to an experienced criminal defense attorney who will be able to guide them through their court proceedings.
