They have now been captured and are awaiting trial.
From an article:
Harris County Sherriff's Office detectives are also connecting Vela to five other armed robberies. That includes one that happened at the Walmart at Fry Road and I-10 on Thursday around 9 a.m.
"He clicked the gun and pointed it at me like that and said, I'm going to take your purse," said Bina Vora. "The scariest thing I have ever felt in my life."
Bina Vora was putting groceries in her trunk when the gunman crept up from behind.
"I just froze basically when he pointed the gun at me," said Vora.
Vora says the gunman got away with approximately $250 in cash. She also says her debit card was used about 15 minutes after the robbery.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
