A man walks into a central store with a bandana over his face and a shotgun in his hands, demanding money, making this the Crime Stoppers “Crime of the Week.” 

The incident  occured on March 10, when the suspect entered Cricket Wireless at 1601 Montana carrying a double-barreled, sawed-off shotgun and demanded money from the cash register. The shotgun was black with a wood-type grip, and it had black tape wrapped around the handle. The suspect spoke Spanish and was wearing a black and white flannel shirt, white baseball cap, and white gloves, with a bandana covering the lower portion of his face.

After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect fled in a white, possibly late 90’s Ford Taurus with dark spots that could have been primer on the driver’s side door. The vehicle was in bad condition and had car parts dangling from the bottom, and possibly had Texas license plates. The suspect was last seen heading east on Montana.
