The pair was seen on the recording forcefully breaking into the convenience store through a rear entrance, filling two large bags with merchandise, then exiting a short time later with about 30 cartons of cigarettes, retailed at about $1,500. The couple fled the premises in a small SUV.

Anyone with information on the identity and/or location of the suspects involved is urged to contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-8845, or Parker County Crime Stoppers at (817) 599-5555. You may remain anonymous when calling Crime Stoppers.
