LINDALE, TX (KLTV) -
Police believe they have positively identified two of the four possible suspects involved in a robbery at an East Texas Walmart.
According to the Lindale Police Department, two male suspects and one female suspect entered the Walmart located at 105 E. Centennial Boulevard around 5:30 a.m. The three suspects walked around inside the store for a short period of time before heading to the electronics department. That is when the suspects grabbed various computers and tried to exit the store using a back door. When the suspects opened the back door an alarm sounded, alerting a Walmart associate.
The store associate confronted the three suspects, attempting to stop them from leaving the store with the stolen merchandise. That is when police say one of the suspects pulled out a gun and pointed it at the employee. The suspects told the employee to not try and stop them because they would not be stopped.
All three suspects and a vehicle used during the robbery were captured by store surveillance cameras. On Tuesday afternoon, Lindale police announced that a fourth suspect may have waited in the truck and acted as the getaway driver. Thanks to tipsters, the white female and black male involved in the robbery have been identified. Their identities have not yet been released.
No arrests have been made so far.
The vehicle used during the robbery appears to be a 1980's model Dodge pick-up.
Anyone with information regarding the suspects involved in this robbery are asked to contact the Lindale Police Department at 903-882-3313.
