HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Four masked men held a clerk at gunpoint during a robbery at a Valero in northwest Harris County, deputies said early Wednesday.
It was around 2:30 a.m. when the men entered the store on Fairbanks N. Houston at West Road.
Deputies said two of the men had guns and kept an eye on the clerk while the other two grabbed cigarettes and cash. All four took off around the back of the store and into a subdivision.
Nearby deputies responded and found a vehicle matching the description of the suspects. Deputies said the stolen merchandise was found inside the car.
The three men in the Chevrolet Impala were taken into custody while the search for the fourth continued. Deputies said the suspect still on the run may live in the neighborhood behind the store.
