The male first purchased a donut and as the employee closed the cash register, the suspect displayed a handgun and demanded the cash drawer from the register. The suspect then reached over the counter, open the register, removed the cash drawer and then fled in an unknown direction.

Then on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 3:09 pm, the same suspect walked back into the same Shipley’s Donuts while wearing the same clothing. The suspect told the employee in Spanish “You know,” jumped on the counter and grabbed the cash drawer from the register. The suspect fled the location with the cash drawer, got into the passenger seat of a 2010-2012 black Volkswagen Jetta with a sunroof, which sped off at a high rate of speed North on South SH 6 towards I10.
