Local Detectives Searching for Armed Robber

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Corpus Christi Detectives are searching for a masked gunman who robbed a Whataburger. The robbery happened just before 1 a.m. at the Whataburger on Staples near Gollihar. Five-employees were inside at the time when investigators say the robber walked into the store and pulled a gun. That robber then ran off. Lieutenant James Gray says the people inside did the right thing by cooperating with the robbers demands.

"Cooperate. Don't try to fight. You'll end up getting hurt," said Lieutenant James Gray with the Corpus Christi Police Department. "You never can tell what someone is going to do in that situation...they may be just as scared as the employees."

Gray would not say if the robber actually made off with any money. Detectives are looking through surveillance video. Call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS if you have any information that could lead to an arrest.
