In light of the recent string of aggravated robberies the department would like to elicit your help.
Waco police know that a witness saw a suspicious vehicle described as a 92 to 98 model burgundy in color, four door Buick parked in the alley behind Acceptance Insurance on Monday at about 5:00 p.m. It was occupied by a black male described as being bald, ranging from 26 to 36 years old. Police were not told about the vehicle until after the Acceptance Insurance robbery that occurred the following day at 5:23 p.m.
At this point, it is unknown if the suspicious vehicle from Monday had anything to do with the robbery. Police would like to remind our citizens to be vigilant in helping us protect their neighborhoods and the business’s that are in their area as well. Please notify the authorities immediately in the event they see suspicious activity occurring in their neighborhoods.
Waco P.D. would also recommend business to be aware of the recent robberies and take all necessary precautions. Be aware of what is going on in and around their businesses and to notify Police immediately in the event they suspect a potential problem.
Detectives are working at this time to determine if any of the robberies are related and as suspect information becomes available we will pass that along to you all.
As of right now the general description has been black males ranging in age from mid-twenties to mid- thirties. Most of the time they are covering their faces with black hoodies or bandanas while doing the robberies.
The suspect from Acceptance Insurance yesterday was described as a black male, mid-twenty, medium build, dark completed, wearing a black hoodie, sunglasses, and had a mustache and goatee. Victim was not able to tell us what direction the suspect left in. No injuries or suspect vehicles seen.
Anyone with information on the robberies should call tips into (254)753-HELP.
