SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police are still searching for the second suspect involved in a jewelry armed robbery at a North Side Costco store.
Joshua Lawrence Mullenix, 28, was identified as the getaway driver in the incident, according to an arrest affidavit. He is still at large.
The robbery happened Saturday afternoon at the Costco located at Loop 1604 and Hardy Oak.
According to an arrest affidavit, a Costco employee watched Ricky Green, 29, enter the store and approach the jewelry case. Officials said he then pulled out a hammer and began smashing the top of the display case.
Green reached his hand into the broken glass and began pulling out jewelry, the affidavit states. The employee that was nearby yelled for him to stop and that’s when Green approached him, pulled out a gun and waved it in the air, police said.
The employee stepped back and other customers witnessed the incident as well. Green continued to steal the jewelry and placed the pieces in his pockets, according to police.
While reaching into the broken glass, officials said Green sustained a cut on his right hand.
