Man wanted in 2 aggravated robberies in Tyler, Lindale

LINDALE (KYTX) - Two arrest warrants issued for the same man, both for aggravated robbery on the same day.

One in Lindale, the other in Tyler.

Lindale Police say thanks to clear surveillance video from Walmart, they got a good picture of the car used, and the three suspects. That lead to many phone calls, and more information.

You can see the suspect run from the side doors of the Lindale Walmart, then head straight for this 1989 Dodge truck.

Sgt. Chad McElyea with the Lindale Police Department says this video is what helped them identify all three suspects who went into Walmart around 5:30 AM Monday.

"I'd say within a couple of hours, we pretty much felt comfortable on positive ids on all suspects," says Sgt. McElyea.

Especially this suspect, 34-year-old Adam Heath Bowers.

Lindale Police have an arrest warrant for aggravated robbery, because he pulled a gun on a Walmart employee when the person tried to stop him from leaving.

But that's not all, Tyler Police also have an arrest warrant, for the same charge, just hours later at this Family Dollar Store on Frankston Highway.

And when we dug into Bowers' past, he served time for another aggravated robbery in Irving in 2002.

Lindale Police were able to locate this truck, but haven't been able to find Bowers.

"We are working on search warrants to search the vehicle, that's all we have at this point, is the vehicle. We're pretty sure the gun is still on his person," says Sgt. McElyea.

Sgt. McElyea says they're still unsure of what all Bowers took when he left, and they're trying to determine what role the other two suspects played as well.

Lindale Police say Bowers did drop some evidence at the Walmart when he was leaving. They're using that now to further the investigation.

If you see Bowers, call police, he is considered armed and dangerous.

Walmart's corporate office says in situations like this, the associate did the right thing.

The spokesperson went on to say when it comes to Walmart's associates, guests and customers, safety is the retailers top priority.
