Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for the arrest of two men accused robbing Texas insurance offices at gunpoint.
Authorities are asking the public to help them identify two men who allegedly robbed an insurance office in northwest Harris County at gunpoint last month and who are suspected of robbing another one a few days later in southwest Houston.
The first heist occurred at the Fred Loya Insurance office at 10928 W. FM 1960 near Jones Road about 1 p.m.Feb. 17, officials said.
Authorities said they believe the same two men robbed another Fred Loya office at 6407 Hillcroft near Sand Point Drive about 1:35 p.m.Feb. 19.
In the earlier robbery, the two men walked into the office and one of the men pulled out a gun, pointed it at the three workers in the office and demanded cash. He then forced the employees into a back room at gun point and ordered them to give him their personal property.
The other man rummaged through the office.
Then the men left with an undisclosed amount of cash and the victims' possessions. They were seen in a vehicle described only as white.
The office's surveillance camera recorded images of the men.
One of the men is between 20 years old and 30 years old. He is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and has a medium build. He wore a white polo short, green camouflage pants and a white cap.
The other man is described as in his 20s, about 5 feet 4 inches tall and skinny. He wore a blue denim jacket with the letters "S C" in black on the front, blue jeans and a cap.
Anyone with information about the robberies is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or on-line at www.crime-stoppers.org. Tips can also be sent by text message. Text TIP610 and tips to CRIMES.
Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information that leads to the men being charged or arrested.
