Suspect wanted in Lindale Walmart robbery also wanted for Tyler Family Dollar robbery

Posted: Updated:
LINDALE (KYTX) -

UPDATE: TYLER (KYTX) - Tyler Police have issued an arrest warrant for 34-year-old Adam Heath Bowers for the aggravated robbery of a Family Dollar Store on January 13, 2014.

Bowers is also one of three suspects in the armed robbery of a Lindale Walmart on Monday.

Lindale Police said Tuesday that all three suspects in Monday's armed robbery at Walmart had been identified based on feedback from publicly released security camera photos.

Lindale Police Sergeant Chad McElyea said the two men and one woman were inside Walmart around 5:00am and proceeded to wander the store for a while before heading to the electronics section and attempting to steal computers and other electronic items.

McElyea said the group attempted to flee through a rear door near that part of the store and inadvertently tripped an alarm, startling them and alerting an employee.

When that employee tried to stop the alleged thieves, McElyea said one of the men pulled a gun on the employee before the group continued its escape. They left in a late 1980s pickup.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department at (903) 531-1000.

If you have information that leads to the arrest of this or any felony suspect and you call Crimestoppers you could receive a reward of up to $1000.00. Call Tyler-Smith County at 903-597-CUFF (2833).
