Seeking new ways to combine their children’s love of digital devices with the health benefits and fun of being outdoors, many parents are turning to geocaching, a hunt for hidden “treasures,” or caches, using the latest technology.

Detectives are investigating an attempted robbery of D’s Gift Shop in which one of the suspects was killed.

At about 9:03 p.m. Tuesday evening, Sept. 17, patrol officers responded to a reported aggravated robbery of D’s Gift Shop, a game room in the 3600 block of East Lucas. A clerk in the game room told officers that three men attempted to rob him at gunpoint. Sometime during the robbery attempt, the owner retrieved his handgun and exchanged gunfire with the robbery suspects. After the exchange of gunfire, all three suspects fled on foot.


A clerk was pistol whipped by a black male brandishing a firearm in an aggravated robbery Sept.16 in Port Arthur.

The incident happened at the Top Dollar thrift store at 1908 Ninth Ave. Monday night at 7:43 p.m., according to a PAPD police report.
