A reward is being offered in hopes of catching a man who robbed a pair of Game Stop stores.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office said the suspect took cash in armed robberies of the Game Stop in the 7000 block of Highway 6 on July 19 and again in the robbery of the franchise's Willowbrook Mall location on July 29.
In each robbery, the suspect walked into the store, pulled up his shirt to show he had a gun before walking around the counter to take the cash from the store clerk. The robber would then casually walk out of the store.
The suspect is described as a white man between 30- and 40-years-old. He is about 5 foot 11 inches to 6 foot 2 inches tall and is heavy set with dark brown hair and a goatee. He was also wearing wire rim glasses, a dark blue Hawaiian-style shirt, khaki shorts and Dallas Cowboys ball cap.
Crime Stoppers of Houston is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect. The tip line is (713) 222-8477.
