|Gunman at the scene of the armed robbery at Spring Walmart|
A man with a disguise entered a Walmart store at night in Spring, Texas. Using employee garb and using an intercom to call a special code, he initiated a cash collection, then robbed the employee who collected the cash, at gunpoint. He then fled in a getaway car with an accomplice.
From an article:
The robber came in dressed like a Walmart worker with some extra accessories.
"According to witnesses, he was wearing a wig, sunglasses in the middle of the night and he had some type of lip balm or gloss," said Sgt. M. Alvarado with the Harris County Robbery division.
Surveillance video shows him walking around the store.
Investigators believe the robber may be a current or former employee because he had inside information that only workers would know. He used an intercom to announce a special code, signaling a worker to go to the front of the store and collect the cash.
"She got a call on the intercom, I guess to pick up some special thing, and she knew what that meant," said Lucy Taylor, the victim’s mother.
Seconds later, the suspect approached the employee who had just finished collecting money from the registers and placed it in the money cart.
The robber pointed the weapon at the woman and pulled the cart out of her hands.
He ran outside where a getaway driver was waiting. They struggled to get the money cart into the trunk of the white Expedition.
While that’s going on, employees were yelling at them to stop. The suspect pointed the gun at them as they sped away.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
