Jacksonville police looking for two robbery suspects, considered to be armed and dangerous

JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) - Jacksonville police are searching for two men they say robbed several gas stations at gunpoint.
The robberies happened in June, at Max's Gas Station in the 600 block of East Rusk Street and Champs Gas Station in the 300 block of North Bolton Street.

"They put a gun to my head," gas station clerk Ray Mata says.

He says he felt helpless.

"They took all of my money and I couldn't do anything," Mata says.

Surveillance video shows three masked men robbing Max's gas station; one holding a gun to the clerk's head.

Police say it was their second stop in a string of gas station robberies.

Champs Gas Station owner Iffy says his employee did the right thing by giving up all of the cash.


"They have been told very clearly, with anything like this, whatever they say, they keep their mouth shut and just do it," Iffy says.

One of the three suspects was a juvenile who was caught early on, now charged with aggravated robbery. Jacksonville police say they are actively looking for the other two men, identified as 25-year-old Justin Allen Jones and 18-year-old Torrian Stubblefield.

Both men have outstanding warrants out of Cherokee County for unrelated crimes. Police say both men are considered to be armed and dangerous.
Jacksonville police ask that if you know the whereabouts of the men, you should not approach them, but ask that you call law enforcement immediately.
