Surveillance video released of gas station robbery last month in west Houston
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston police have released surveillance video of a suspect wanted in the robbery of a west Houston business last month.
On November 12 at around 11pm, police say officers were called to the New Tony Express service station at 4010 Synott and were advised that a suspect robbed the business. After he pointed a gun at an employee, the suspect jumped over a counter to gain access to a cash register.
Once the employee gave him money, the suspect attempted to leave through the front door, but could not. He then climbed through ceiling tiles and entered a neighboring business to escape.
