Police say Adam Heath Bowers robbed the Walmart located at 105 E. Centennial Boulevard in Lindale. Two male suspects and one female suspect entered the Walmart around 5:30 a.m. Monday. The three suspects walked around inside the store for a short period of time before heading to the electronics department.
