AMARILLO -- Monday evening around 6:46 PM, Amarillo Police responded to a called at Dillards on a reported robbery. Four Dillard’s loss prevention employees and a mall security guard reported the incident.
Officers learned that the four suspects, two males and two females, entered the store at about 4:45 p.m. They walked around the store and made purchases on debit and credit cards. One of them also concealed some women’s clothing and made no attempt to pay for it.
When the four walked out, store security followed them. The store employees spoke to the four and told them to stop. One loss prevention employee took physical custody of the bags one male suspect was carrying, including a woman’s purse.
Another Dillard’s employee tried to detain one of the females.
Three of the suspects ran to a white and blue 80’s or 90’s GMC pickup in the parking lot.
The male suspect that had been carrying the bags told the security employee that he had a gun. The male then ran to the pickup and retrieved a silver colored handgun. He walked back toward the loss prevention employees, pointing the gun at them and threatening them.
The store security went back inside.
The armed suspect then got into the pickup and left the mall.
The vehicle was last seen southbound on S. Coulter. The purse taken from the suspect contained credit cards and other identifying documents that were stolen in an auto burglary at the mall on Saturday.
There have been no arrests.
