Crime Stoppers: Armed Robbery At Kangaroo Store On Dallas Road

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of an armed convenience store robber.


On Jan. 18, around 4 a.m., a black male brandishing a pistol, entered the Kangaroo at 902 Dallas Road with an American flag bandanna covering his face, and demanded two employees open a safe or he would shoot. The employees gave him the small amount of cash that was in the register after he discovered the drop box could not be entered, and he fled on foot after taking several cartons of Newport cigarettes.


Investigators also believe this could be the same suspect from the robbery of a separate convenience store in the Tiftonia area a few hours earlier, and in both cases a small white vehicle (possibly an SUV) was seen immediately before or after the robberies..

The suspect is described as an African American male, around 5’10”-6’00” feel tall with a heavy build and medium-skin complexion wearing a blue hat, white sweater, and khaki pants at the time. He was armed with a blue steel semi-auto pistol. 


Detectives believe someone might have some information about the identity of this robber, and a confidential call could result in a cash reward. Anyone with information should call with an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at 423 698-3333.
