A robbery occurred at Loves Truck Stop, 7495 Smith Road in Beaumont, Sunday at approximately 3:20 a.m.

The assailant entered the store at the main entrance. Once the store was free of customers, the man indicated he had a weapon, telling the clerk, “there was going to be a killing” while holding his hand behind his back as if he had a gun, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said the man pictured left the store with money from the register.

The man then demanded money from the register. The clerk complied, and the assailant fled the store to a waiting vehicle.

The man is described as a middle-aged, heavy-set black male wearing dark pants, dark shirt with large lettering “MK” on the front, and a grey Houston Astros baseball cap.
