DAINGERFIELD, TX (KLTV) – An East Texas woman was robbed at gun point in the Daingerfield Public Library just after 9:00 am Monday morning. Police have arrested Lavelle Hopkins, 19, of Hughes Springs on an aggravated robbery charge.
The suspect entered the library shortly after it opened and requested to use a computer. Earlene Walton was working and agreed to sign him in and get him all situated, since he did not have a library card.
The suspect told Walton that he had forgotten something and left the building. When he returned, he pulled out a gun. Within minutes, the suspect had fled with a jar that friends of the library used to collect donations. The jar held less than $100.
Walton says that nothing like this has ever happened in her 23 years as the librarian at Daingerfield Public Library.
Hopkin's bond has been set at $150,000 for Aggravated Robbery and $3,000 for Possession of an Illegal Drug.
