The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office used multiple tools to track and arrest a suspect who allegedly tried to rob a Walgreens at gunpoint in The Woodlands this morning.
According to reports from MCSO, earlier this morning, January 22, 2019, at about 7:30 am, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the Walgreens located at 3061 College Park Dr.
Witnesses stated that a male suspect entered the Walgreens and went straight to the pharmacy located in the back of the store. He handed the Pharmacist a note asking for specific drugs and showed her what appeared to be a long gun under his jacket. The suspect then jumped over the counter and walked out.
The suspect headed south on foot toward the back of the Walgreens and across the street behind another building located at 17191 St Luke's Way and disappeared.
The suspect was described as a white male with short brown hair...tall - about 6'0-6'3" and thin. He was wearing a surgical mask, a dark brown backpack, a jacket and olive green colored coveralls with a hoodie.
K-9 and Air support assisted in the search, and the suspect was caught a little while later.
College Park High School was temporarily placed on lockout while the search was going on. CISD PD was on the scene to secure the school grounds.
We'll update this post as soon as the suspect's identity is released.
