SPD video captures armed robbery in progress


Shreveport Police have released surveillance video of Monday's armed robbery of a convenience store in hopes that someone will help them get information about the robber.

Police say they want the identity of a robber who, at about 1:10 p.m., entered the Mobil station at 3100 Bert Kouns, walked toward the store's indoor ATM and then walked behind the counter before robbing the clerk at gunpoint.

The clerk complied and put the money into a black-and-white duffle bag. The robber then left the station on foot, heading toward the Seasons Apartments.

As seen in the video, the robber wore a black hoodie, white T-shirt, and black baseball cap. Police say he was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the robber's identity and/or arrest. Contact Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or www.lockemup.org.
