As you may remember, last week on January 2, officers responded to Albertsons at 2751 North County Road West on Tuesday night for a call of a robbery.

When police arrived on scene they found that two suspects had left the store with $25 worth of chicken that they didn't pay for.

An Albertsons employee then confronted them, but was grabbed by the throat and told that one of the two suspects had a knife.

At this time they have obtained warrants for their arrests and need your help to locate them.

If you have information on the location of the suspects you are urged to contact Detective W. Branch at 432-335-4924 or Odessa Crime Stoppers at 432-333-TIPS and reference Case #18-00252.
