AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin and Plfugerville police are asking for your help identifying the suspects seen in surveillance video following robberies at four area businesses over the weekend.

On Saturday, Sept. 17, a female suspect is seen entering the Walgreens Pharmacy at 9307 N. Lamar Blvd. At around 7:19 a.m., she showed a weapon and demanded money from store staff, and then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police describe the suspect as Hispanic, in her late teens to early twenties, around five foot two, of thin build and with long dark hair with red highlights.

That evening, around 5:55 p.m., police believe the same woman entered Unica La Michoacana at 946 Payton Gin Rd., again showed her weapon and demanded money. When an employee refused, the suspect grabbed a tip jar and left the store.

At around 10:11 p.m., she went to another Walgreens, at 12250 Metric Blvd., showed a weapon and demanded money, fleeing with an undisclosed amount.

On Sunday, at 2:54 p.m., she entered the Walgreens at 1509 W. Wells Branch Pkwy. in Pflugerville with a male suspect. As in the previous cases, she showed her weapon and demanded money, before leaving the pharmacy with the other suspect and the stolen money.

Police describe the male suspect as in his late teens to early twenties, five foot seven to five foot nine with a thin build and goatee.

The Austin Police Robbery Unit is asking anyone with information on the incidents to call their tip line at 512-974-5092 or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS.
