I was hearing rumors about this today and now it's been confirmed that a robbery took place at the Murphy USA gas station that I presume is owned by the Wal-Mart. Lufkin Crime Stoppers and the Lufkin Police Department are asking the public's help in finding these thieves.

ROBBERY: Early this morning we received a report of a robbery that just occurred at Murphy USA in front of Walmart.
Three people including a store clerk were inside the business around 4:15 a.m. when three black males entered the store and commanded the clerk to the ground.
One of the suspects attempted to zip tie the clerk while the other two took a sledgehammer and crow bar to the ATM inside the store.
The suspects fled on foot toward Starbucks with an unknown amount of cash from the ATM.
One suspect was wearing a red Nike hoodie with the hood pulled tight around the face, black pants, white shoes and had facial hair. The suspect with the zip ties was wearing a black hoodie with black pants and black shoes. And the additional suspect was wearing a white hoodie and red pants.
No one was injured in the incident.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call the Department at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS if they wish to remain anonymous.
