NE Side Texas Thrift Store robbed at gunpoint

Suspects burst into store Sunday evening, remain at-large


WINDCREST, Texas – Employees at a Northeast Side thrift store were shaken up Sunday night after they were robbed at gunpoint.

Police responded to the armed robbery at the Texas Thrift Store off Interstate 35 and Eisenhauer Road around 7 p.m.

Police said two men with guns burst through the front doors after the store had closed for the night.

Police would not confirm what was taken, but they said it appeared that the two suspects knew what they were looking for.

An employee's boyfriend said Sunday's robbery was the second time the thrift store had been targeted. He said Saturday two males broke in through the back of the store.

"They were demanding money because I guess they couldn't find the safe. And, it's just a sad state of affairs when you have a thrift store, people that come to the thrift store, they don't really have a lot. Here they are robbing from the poor," said John Green.

Store employees gave police a description of the suspects, but an arrest had not been announced as of Sunday evening.
