At 11:23 p.m. Twin Falls City Police Officers were dispatched to a robbery at the parking lot of the Family Dollar store located at 1746 Addison Ave. East.
A white male wearing a hoodie and blue jeans approached a
store employee while she was sitting in her vehicle after closing the store. The
suspect opened the car door and held his hand in his pants as if he had a
firearm. The suspect then stole a purse from the employee and fled on foot southbound
into the field behind the Family Dollar.
A perimeter was set up and a police service dog was deployed
in an attempt to track the suspect. Police were unable to locate the suspect
and the investigation is still in progress.
Twin Falls Police will update the incident with photos and
video if they become available. If the
community has any information on this crime please contact Detective Jon Wilson
at the Twin Falls Police Department in reference to case number 1701194.
