Three Arrested for Dollar General Robbery


The Texarkana Texas Police Department arrested three people for the May 26th robbery of the Dollar General store.  Jaquaylon James, 17, of Texarkana Texas, and two sixteen year old juveniles turned themselves in to authorities on Tuesday after warrants were issued for their arrest.


Officers were dispatched to the report of a robbery at the Dollar General in the 4900 block of West Seventh Street at approximately 9:40 p.m. on May 26.  Three males entered the store and demanded cash from the clerk.  They were last seen running west from the store with an undisclosed amount of money.


After surveillance video of the robbery was released on social media last week, Detective Brian Purcell received information that ultimately led to the identification of the three people involved.


James is being held in the Bi-State Jail, where his bond has been set at $20,000.  The two juveniles are currently being held at a Juvenile Detention Center.
