Sherman grocery store robbed again

SHERMAN, TX -- A local grocery store was robbed for the second time in two months Sunday morning. Now Sherman Police are looking for a suspect.

Sherman Police say the suspect waited outside the Albertson’s on Taylor Street as employees arrived for work Sunday morning.

They say he approached each worker, showing a handgun and demanding to be let into the store, but none of them had keys. He held each employee at gunpoint until one arrived with a key.

Police say that's when he forced the employee to let him in. He stole cash from the store and then ran off.

A K-9 officer tracked his scent to Crockett Street before losing the trail.

"It wasn't necessarily a hostage situation, but they weren't free to go. It was just a matter of moments before someone was able to open the door," Sherman Police Sgt. Bruce Dawsey said.

Here’s a description of the suspect:

-Lighter-skinned black man
-5'8"-6'0"
-Late 20's to early 30's
-Wearing all black clothing
-Armed with small pistol

On December 15th of last year, Sherman Police reported a man walking into the same Alberton's store with a semi-automatic handgun. He demanded money from the checker, and then attempted to shoot an employee, but the gun did not discharge.

The suspect escaped, but police are not confirming if the two incidents are related.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sherman Police Department at 903-892-7290.

    Hey cop, maybe the cops get paid less because they're too stupid to pick up trash. They probably couldn't find the dump anyway.

    Hey Just Me...Would it make you feel better if the culprit was described as a dark skinned white man under the age of 80 and less than nine feet in height?

    I am taxpayer and I am concerned about the lack of dedication displaced by a few bad apples in police department. Don't sound to much like your job is such a choir. IF YOUR IN IT FOR THE MONEY, JOIN THE GARBAGE DEPT. p.s. You don't get to wear a badge but you get more appreciation.

    To Anonymous location Sherman, well since your so awsome and think you can do a better job than us why don't you take the test and be a cop so you can protect everybody better than we do.Bob's right we can't be everywhere all the time.Did you ever think that we are looking for this guy, but we don't give all of our information to the criminals so that our investigation is compromised and might get inoccent people hurt.Hey, by the way did you know that garbage men make more money than most police officers.Like said Anonymous put on the badge and do my job for a while before you start putting down the cops who leave their families every day and night not knowing if they will ever see them again,we're always the ones you call when you need help.Anonymous your just an idiot,quit trying to act like you know what your talking about.

    See you just said you would always look out for the black man that is racism

    Just me, if it is always a black man committing the offense, how is that racism? And how exactly does reporting the crime add up to "putting down the black man". But according to your own post, it is always a black man committing the offense. I hadn't noticed that, but I'll take your word for it, now I know who to look out for, thanks for the warning.
