Police Seek Convenience Store Armed Robbery Suspects

October 5, 2016

A Flomaton convenience store was robbed at gunpoint early Wednesday and police believe it was the same suspects as a robbery last month.

On the morning of September 20, 2016, at approximately 12:45 a.m., two armed subjects entered the Texaco  Station in Flomaton and held the clerk at gun point. Both subjects were disguised as seen in the photos.

Wednesday morning, October 5, at about 1:40 a.m., two armed subjects entered the Kangaroo Station in Flomaton and held the clerk at gun point. Both subjects were disguised in a similar fashion.

The Flomaton Police Department believes that the same persons are responsible for both robberies. During the robbery of the Texaco Station, the suspect in the gray jacket can be heard calling the suspect in the blue jacket “Steve”.

The Town of Flomaton has set up an email address for any tips in reference to the robberies or other crimes, crimetips@flomatonal.org. Anyone can also contact the Flomaton Police through their Facebook page or by phone at (251)  296-5811.

A $1,000 reward is being offering for information leading to the arrest of these armed robbery suspects. The reward money is being provided by two anonymous individuals.

The suspects are armed and should be considered very dangerous, according to police.

    When will clerks be allowed to have concealed weapons? Self defense.

    When l was a youth we used hoodies to keep warm. We also called them hooked sweat shirts . I’m dated.

    It was my son working that not and he was really stressed over it. They should a part time cop to be there. My only son could easily been shot and leave behind three kids and a loving wife and his parents. I hope they catch the thugs and not let them go. Someone is going to get hurt during these robberys and pray it doesn’t go that far.

    Does the store have the HEIGHT meter on the doorframe to tell more about the size of these guys?
    Grey hoodie is awfully flat-chested to be a female, so the big lump of what appears to be hair in the hood isn’t a good indicator of sex.
    A Left-handed black guy named Steve? Can’t be many of those around a little town.
    Of course, they could’ve swapped costumes just to throw people off.
    Maybe the big-haired dude with a bright red shirt is Steve.

    Marilyn- men wear bright red shirts because it’s been proven that women find them more attractive in that color ;-)

    the one in the dark hoodie is left handed. he would be holding the pistol in his dominant hand.

  11. A Alex on October 5th, 2016 7:55 pm

    Mimi , you are wrong. The dark hoodie is a black person. Look at his hands.

  12. Susan Pearson on October 5th, 2016 7:30 pm

    @Mimi “BOTH are white”……..how can you tell?…..I don’t see that.

  13. A Alex on October 5th, 2016 5:55 pm

    Not sure you can say they are white, by the pics i’ve seen.

  14. Marilyn on October 5th, 2016 5:09 pm

    Why in the world would a male robber wear a bright red shirt under a hoodie. Are you sure both are male?

  15. MiMi on October 5th, 2016 2:31 pm

    Both are White and the Sweat Shirts are new. The one in the Grey appears to have a ponytail and a medical mask. So everyone that bought new sweats clothes recently?. Do the camera’s go back for a couple of days????

    Judging by the fresh appearance of the hooded pull overs, It appears They may have been purchased (maybe) at the same retail store. Start checking surveillance from local dollar stores!
