Officers responded to a 911 call on Thursday, January 1, 2015 at 7:10pm, after being told the Seven Days Convenience Store located at 1408 E. Rancier had just been robbed. As officers were in route to the area they were told that a black male with a tattoo near his left eye, wearing a blue hooded jacket and a red, white and blue bandana across his face, entered the store and demanded money from the attendants.  A weapon was not displayed however the suspect made reference to having one.  The suspect then fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and entered a dark colored Land Rover with a partial license plate bearing CJT5, driven by a white male adult wearing a green sweatshirt.  Officers searched the immediate area but were unable to locate the vehicle at that time.  An officer who was patrolling his area shortly after the robbery, drove past a Shell gas station in the 1100 block of South Fort Hood St. and saw a dark colored Land Rover at the gas pumps, he then saw a white male wearing a green sweatshirt walking around the back of the vehicle.  As the vehicle was leaving the gas station, officers stopped the vehicle with two occupants matching the description of the suspects from the recent robbery in the 1300 block of South Fort Hood St.

The two male occupants were identified as those who were involved in the robbery of the Seven Days Convenience Store and taken into custody. As officers were inventorying the vehicle they also found evidence from the same robbery.

This case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office and a complaint was returned charging 26 year old Jeffery Jamal Smien Jr. and 30 year old Kourtney Obrian Scott with Robbery. They are currently in the Killeen City Jail awaiting arraignment on January 3, 2015.
