DOUGLASSVILLE, TX (KSLA) -

An arrest has been made in the robbery of a East Texas grocery store last week, but authorities in Cass County are still looking for a second suspect.

23-year-old Randall Beasley of Maud, Texas is charged with 1 count of aggravated robbery in connection with the Sept. 23 robbery of Mike's Food Mart in Douglassville.

Deputies say a man came in to the store with a handgun and robbed the place. Police say he left with an undisclosed amount of money, heading east on Hwy 77 toward Atlanta, TX in a white SUV.

Cass County deputies are still looking for that man. They have released a surveillance image of him. He is described as white, about 6'3", 300 lbs with a gray pullover shirt and dark shorts.

Anyone with information can contact the Cass County Sheriff's Office at (903) 756-7511.

Beasley, meanwhile, is being held at the Cass County Jail on $1M bond. At this point, deputies are not saying what part he played in the holdup.
