Smash and Grab at JJ's Chevron

Four suspects are in custody following the theft of an ATM from a Liberty convenience store. Liberty Police Chief Thomas Claunch said it was around 2:50 a.m. Tuesday morning when officers were dispatched to the J. J.‘s Chevron convenience store on U. S. 90. Arriving at the store, police quickly determined that someone had driven through the glass wall on the west side of the building and stole the ATM from inside the store. Witnesses said the vehicle – described as a grey truck – fled the scene southbound on FM 563. The Hebert Chevron clerk was not hurt and had law enforcement there in a very few minutes. A Liberty Police Officer and a Liberty County Sheriff’s Deputy soon located two vehicles heading south on 563. One of the two matched the description of the suspect vehicle. Officers attempted to make a traffic stop on those two vehicles, but the drivers of each one refused to stop and a pursuit ensued. LibertyPolice Chief Thomas Claunch said the second vehicle- a white pick up-was ultimately stopped. Two men and the driver, a woman were all arrested. The grey truck thought to be the vehicle that damaged the J. J.‘s Chevron store continued to flee but eventually wrecked. The man driving that truck was also arrested. Liberty Police found the stolen ATM in the bed of that grey truck. Additionally that truck that hauled away ATM is believed to be stolen. No charges have been filed but Chief Claunch said the four – all from the Houstonarea- remain in the Liberty County Jail with aggravated robbery, evading arrest and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle pending. The names of the suspects have not been released. John Hebert Jr. said their store continues to operate around the clock but for now with extra staffing.
