Two Nacogdoches men are in custody in connection with a pair of armed robberies that occurred in Nacogdoches on November 25.
Denzel Neal, age 19 and Christopher Elmore, age 20, both of Nacogdoches were arrested on December 1st by the Austin Texas Police Department on warrants from Nacogdoches for Aggravated Robbery.
Both are charged in the robbery of the Holiday Inn on South Street and the Shell Station at 1000 East Main. Both robberies occurred on the night of November 25, within an hour of each other. Charges are pending on the two for the November 18 burglary of a grocery store in the 100 block of Beall Street, where the building was forcibly entered and cigarettes were taken. The two men are suspects in several other crimes in East Texas, but have not been formally charged.
Nacogdoches Police Detectives identified the suspects from video tape footage from one of the robberies. Warrants were obtained, and a tip to Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers led the investigation to Austin, where the two were arrested. NPD Detectives traveled to Austin yesterday and transported the two back to Nacogdoches, where they were placed in the county jail.
In addition to the NPD and Austin Police, Agents with the Texas DPS Criminal Law Enforcement Division, Region 7 Headquarters assisted in the investigation.
