Express Mart is offering an additional $10,000 Crime Stoppers reward for information that assists Beaumont Police Department in capturing the three suspects who robbed the convenience store at 4095 Dowlen Rd. the morning of Thursday Aug. 24. 

With information from the clerk on duty as well as video footage from surrounding businesses, BPD stated that three black males entered the store and subdued the clerk by zip tying her hands while they proceeded to take money from the register and break open the ATM. The suspects were in the store for less than three minutes and left with two drawers of money in a maroon or dark-colored newer model Dodge Charger, with paper plates, which was waiting outside. The getaway vehicle then continued to flee north on Old Dowlen Road.

BPD stated that the suspects appeared to know what they were doing and that the clerk did not see any weapons, but she believed they had them. 

The first suspect is between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8 and was wearing a gray hoodie, Addidas pants and gray shoes. The second suspect is taller than suspect one and was wearing a dark gray hoodie with a white shirt underneath with dark pants and red shoes. The final suspect was the tallest of the three and heavy set; he was wearing a black hoodie, and dark pants with gray shorts underneath, as well as gray gloves with red and black shoes. 

Exxpress Mart is offering the additional $10,000 Crime Stoppers reward for this or any other Exxpress Mart robbery. BPD asks that anyone with information about this incident or the suspects contact Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers by calling (409) 833-TIPS (8477) or using the P3 TIPS app.
