HSCO: Masked men rob west Houston gas station at gunpoint

Greensroad Road robbery

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Deputies continue to search for two men responsible for an armed robbery at a west Houston gas station in mid September, authorities said.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said it all started in the 3700 block of Greenhouse Road where police said two masked men demanded the clerk reopen the store doors as the employee was locking them. Investigators said said the clerk complied with the robbers orders and found himself laying face down on the floor with a long gun aimed at him.

However, the bandits quickly learned the clerk had no access to the cash safe and took off with the victim’s cell phone and car keys, officers said.

Using surveillance footage, authorities were able to get a description of the robbers.

One of the men is described as thin built, around 5 feet 8 inches tall and wearing dark clothing with a white mask at the time of the incident. Investigators said the other robber, who was seen carrying the gun, has a medium built and is about 5 foot 9. He also was wearing a white mask with dark clothing, deputies said.

Anyone with information related to the robbery is asked to call Crime Stopper of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477). The agency is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest.
