Crime Stoppers: Armed Robbery At 23rd Street Citgo Gas Station

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Crime Stoppers and the Chattanooga Police Department are seeking information on the identification of an armed robbery at a local convenience store.

On Jan. 29, around 7 p.m., a black male entered the Citgo gas station at 1700 E. 23rd Street and acted as if were going to purchase some candy. When the cash drawer opened, the suspect lifted his shirt to reveal a silver handgun in his waistband and threatened to kill the clerk if he didn’t give him the money from the register. The clerk complied, and the suspect ran out the door and across the street where another witness saw him get into a dark-colored Nissan Altima.

The suspect is described as an African American male around six feet tall, with a medium build, medium-skin complexion and a full, neatly-trimmed beard at the time of the robbery. He was armed with a silver handgun, most likely a revolver. 

Detectives believe someone might have some information about the identity of this suspect, and a confidential call could result in a cash reward. 

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 423 698-3333.

Roy Exum: Al Sharpton’s Wise Remarks

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
