Beaumont man arrested following gunpoint robbery

Derek Marshall

Derek Scott Marshall, a 46-year-old Beaumont man, was arrested by Beaumont Police Department after holding two Jack in the Box employees at gun point, the morning of Wednesday, June 20. 

BPD Officer Carol Riley reported that at 1:48 a.m. Marshall entered Jack in the Box at 7380 Highway 105, and pointed a handgun at two female employees. He demanded the employees’ mobile phones, and demanded access to the safe. This was not possible without a manager, so he took additional items from employees and fled eastbound on foot. Officers located Marshall in the 7200 block of Highway 105. He ran north through a field and officers were able to catch him. Officers recovered stolen items and a handgun.  

Marshall was transported to Jefferson County Jail and booked in for two counts of aggravated robbery, evading arrest/detention with a previous conviction, possession of a firearm by a felon and a warrant for class B theft.
