Surveillance Video Released in Robbery Case at 7222 Long Drive
July 31, 2009 - Investigators in the Houston Police Department’s Investigative First Responders Division have released surveillance video of several suspects wanted in at least two robberies of a small transport business in the southeast Houston area.
The suspects are described only as six to eight Hispanic males, in their mid 20s, armed with pistols and assault rifles. In at least one incident, two of the suspects were wearing military style bullet-proof vests. Surveillance photos of the wanted suspects are attached to this news release.
On June 29, two armed male suspects entered Transportes San Miguel, at 7222 Long Drive, pistol-whipped a female employee and stole an undisclosed amount of cash from the business. During this incident, the manager of the business got into a struggle with one of the armed suspects. At some point during the struggle, the suspect suffered a minor gunshot wound. One suspect fled on foot, while the other fled in a gray Nissan Titan pickup truck.
On July 14, four male suspects entered a small residence at 7222 Long Drive, which is part of the Transportes San Miguel while the male victim was asleep and demanded money, keys to the office and cell phones and then fled the scene. Surveillance video obtained from this incident shows the suspects armed with AK-47 assault rifles and handguns and wearing bullet-proof vests.
Anyone with information on these cases or on the identities of the wanted suspects is urged to contact the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
