Police continue search for armed robbery suspect


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — El Paso Police continue the search for a man who held a business at gunpoint in early July.

The robbery happened Monday, July 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Nacionalización y Fronterización De Autos located at 7940 Alameda. Initially, the suspect acted as a potential customer and eventually left before returning, forcing his way into the business.
