FLORESVILLE -- Police here are hoping that the allure of a $1,000 cash reward will prompt a tipster to provide information that could lead to the arrests of the suspects responsible for an Aug. 3 armed robbery.

Crime Stoppers of Wilson County announced the reward just two days after a masked gunman demanded money from the clerk in the One Stop convenience store at the Exxon station at the intersection of U.S. 181 and Hospital Boulevard (S.H. 97 West) in Floresville.

Detective George Ortiz of the Floresville Police Department said an Aug. 6 tip from the San Antonio Police Department has established a possible link between the two suspects and a pair sought in a shoplifting reported at a Dollar General store on the Poteet-Jourdanton Freeway in San Antonio. According to a preliminary report, two suspects entered the Dollar General at approximately 8 a.m. and stole two safety orange-colored Gildan zipper-front hooded sweatshirts, each valued at $14. The pair fled south on the I-35 access road in a white Chevrolet Trailblazer with temporary license plates.

The first suspect in the Dollar General incident is described as a white male age 16-18, standing 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. He had black hair, was clean-shaven, and wore a short-sleeved baggy black T-shirt and green camouflage pants.

The second suspect is described as a clean-shaven white male with black hair, age 16-18, standing 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing green camouflage shorts and a black Nike muscle shirt.

Surveillance video footage captured just three hours later from the One Stop store in Floresville shows a gunman wearing a safety orange-colored, zipper-front hooded sweatshirt over a black shirt, green camouflage pants, and gray high-top sneakers. The suspect, whose face was concealed by a black bandanna, was brandishing an automatic pistol.

The suspect then fled in a white Chevrolet Trailblazer with a black grille, accompanied by an unidentified male. The pair last were seen in the vicinity of Canta Rana Park on Goliad Road in Floresville.

Ortiz confirmed that police recovered a safety orange-colored hooded sweatshirt, size large, that was thrown from the getaway vehicle on B Street in Floresville as the vehicle was being pursued by a witness.
