Robbery suspect sought

Published 11:12pm Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Suffolk police are seeking the public’s assistance identifying an armed robbery suspect.

The man entered the Walmart on College Drive around 3:31 a.m. Sunday and asked a clerk to look at a camera in a display case, according to a release from city spokeswoman Diana Klink.

The suspect, a black male, chose a camera, and the clerk started the transaction. But instead of paying, the man said he had a firearm and wasn’t going to pay for the camera, Klink said.

He then ran out of the store and left in a gold Pontiac Grand Am with two other black males, according to the press release.

The man is described as having a thin build, about 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet 1 inch tall, 150 to 170 pounds, with shoulder-length dreadlocks and a beard and mustache. He was wearing blue jeans and a T-shirt with a logo that mimics the American flag and appears to say “The Cool Kids.”

Anyone who has information is asked to call Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Callers to Crime Line never have to give their names or appear in court, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Detective R. Cain is the lead investigator and can be reached at 514-7935.

    Meanwhile in Delaware a gang of 12 black yoots rape two white women. this I don’t understand all. If they had just been smart they could have contacted Miley Cyrus and they all could have taken her out on a date and avoided any rape charges.

    Speaking of Crime and the Criminal Element, what does this say about the status of our country? I’ll listen to the Crickets While waiting for some kind of mumbo jumbo, shuck and jive, Boogoaloo down or up East Washington Street response.

    I was wondering how long it would take So What to come up with a “black yoots” statement yet I see no opinion on the Thomas Eric Hendrix Jr. story a white male.

      Please enlighten me/us, I am not afraid to comment in a positive or a negative on any racial issue. I googled the name and found nothing it must not be newsworthy.. Iam sick of professional race baiters and un informed folks, including the President blaming white people for the actions of other white folks over a hundred years ago, when they cant take responsibility for their actions of today.
      white America has embraced MLK’s color-blind society much more than blacks. Most white people I know judge people on actions. But how can we ignore the actions of so many blacks who are violent thugs and commit the vast majority of violent crime in America while making up such a small percentage of the population? Look at any city where there are large majority of blacks. Without exception, they are violent hell-holes, dying from decent people of all races fleeing to safer areas and taking their taxes with them. Suffolkians did the same they fled to north Suffolk thinking things would change or be different. SURPRISE but it to is suffering from the same virus and bacteria.
