Killeen Police arrest female involved in Game Exchange Robbery.
On Friday, August 2, 2013, at 9:13pm, officers responded to a 911 call telling them the Game Exchange located at 2501 S.W.S. Young Dr. had just been robbed. Upon the officers arrival they learned that two armed black males forced their way into the store when an employee was escorting a female customer out after closing time. The two males forced the employees to the ground after demanding money. The employees heard someone knocking at the back door to the business shortly after the two suspects entered the store; the suspects opened the door to let another black male suspect inside. Once inside the business the third male led the female customer to the back door and let her out. The three suspects then broke several glass showcases and stole numerous electronic items from within those showcases. The three suspects then fled through the back door.
Detectives continued investigating this robbery and determined that the female customer who was being escorted out the night of the robbery was involved in this incident. A search warrant was executed at the female’s residence in the 3000 block of Blackburn Dr. on Thursday, February 6, 2014 and numerous pieces of evidence involving the female were recovered. The female was taken into custody.
