A man wearing a floppy hat held up the Family Dollar store at 3100 Fort Worth Avenue near Westmoreland this past Wednesday.

The man walked into the store around 1:15 p.m. Aug. 31, approached a cashier and demanded money at gunpoint. He then fled on foot.

The suspect is described as 20-30 years old, 6 feet tall and about 190 pounds.


Village Jewelry and Loan robbery, Jan. 9

We noticed the hat and the chin hair look similar to those of the robber who held up a pawn shop on Fort Worth Avenue three times between Sept. 2015 and January of this year.

Police say those earlier robberies have not yet been solved.

Contact detective J. Jarc at 214.671.3464, if you have any information on this crime, or offer an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers, 214.373.8477.
