Sherman Police are asking for help in identifying a male suspect who made away with about $180 from a Sherman convenience store Thursday afternoon.


At 12:23 p.m., a caller reported a robbery to police at the Get & Go at 2001 S. Crockett St. Police said in a news release that a male suspect entered the store at about 12:05 p.m. and shopped inside for a few minutes. At about 12:12 p.m., he left the store after buying cigars.


About 10 minutes later, the suspect entered the store again to exchange the cigars and break a $100 bill. As the clerk went to a backroom to get change, the suspect followed and “pulled what the clerk believed was a firearm,” the release states. The suspect placed the weapon to her head and demanded money. The clerk handed over the money from the backroom and the cash from the register, giving the suspect about $180.


The suspect was described as a black male, 18 to 25 years old, between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 9 inches, and 150 pounds. He was wearing a white hoodie, black athletic pants and white tennis shoes. The release notes the suspect entered a tan or gold four-door car, possibly a Chevrolet Impala, and another person was driving the vehicle.


If anyone has information or can identify the suspect, contact Sherman Police Det. Talia Riffe at 903-892-7341 or the police department at 903-892-7290.
