Meat market robbery caught on camera in Houston

The Houston Police Department needs the public’s assistance identifying the suspects responsible for an aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

On August 21, 2020, at about 4:50 pm, three unknown males arrived in a white Hyundai Sonata, and reversed into a parking space at La Michoacana Meat Market, located at 11830 Airline Dr.

One of the suspects was armed while the other suspects were shouting and pushed all of the customers back.

The second male went around the register, removed the cash drawer and handed it to the third male who stayed at the door. The second male then ran to the back of the store and soon returned and all three males ran out of the store and fled the location in the white Hyundai Sonata, Houston PD said.

According to a police report:

“Prior to the robbery, the white Sonata arrived about 20 minutes prior to the robbery, and a Hispanic male exited the vehicle, entered the store, walked around the entire store before selecting a bottled drink from the cooler, purchased it and left.

It is apparent that he was scouting the store prior to the robbery as he returned to the car that was soon to return to commit the Aggravated Robbery. This male was of medium height, slim to medium build, with short dark brown hair, medium-dark skin tone, wearing a black t-shirt, red shorts, white socks, and light blue/green Croc shoes that were several sizes too small.
