Blotter: Lewisville police seek public’s help in finding armed robber

Comments () A Text Size

Lewisville police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man they say they believe committed three robberies.

In one case Saturday, the man with a gun entered a convenience store in the 1800 block of South Interstate 35E and demanded money, police said.

The clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and the man fled, police said.

The clerk believes it was the same man who robbed the store previously, police said.

Another aggravated robbery was reported April 15 at 6:45 a.m. in the 100 block of Kiedler Drive when a woman was confronted by man with a handgun as she got into her vehicle.

The man told her to slide over into the passenger seat, but she got out of the vehicle and the man drove away in her car, according to police.

The woman said she had noticed the man sitting on the ledge near a brick wall as she got into her vehicle, reports show.

The robberies are under investigation.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Lewisville Police Department’s crime tip line at 972-219-TIPS or Denton County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-388-TIPS.

Other reports

2000 block of Stockbridge Road — A kitchen fire forced five people out of their apartment Monday. Kenneth Hedges, spokesman for the Denton Fire Department, said crews were dispatched to the fire call at 4:06 p.m. Monday, where light smoke was visible from a third-floor apartment.

A pan of grease on the stove started the fire and a fire sprinkler system inside the apartment activated one sprinkler head, extinguishing the fire.

Officials said water damaged three apartments, including damage to the stove and surrounding cabinets in the kitchen where the fire originated.

No injuries were reported. The American Red Cross assisted the displaced residents.
