Cops: Suspects rob Marble Falls store
Two men are suspected of robbing a Marble Falls convenience store Oct. 18 by threatening the clerk with a large knife, according to police.
The incident, captured on surveillance video inside the Exxon Kwik Check, was reported to have occurred around 12:30 a.m. that night. The store is located at 1003 RR 1431.

The suspects, wearing face coverings known as gaiters, were either white or Hispanic males, ranging in age from 20 to 40 years old, according to the report.

“The clerk walked back to the store and called the police department,” Greer said.
When the suspects reached a restaurant west of the store, they crossed the highway and disappeared behind a retail store, Greer explained.
The robbery report comes on the heels of another incident in January at the LBJ Food Mart, 407 U.S. 281, in the city.
The suspect, believed to be either a Hispanic or Asian male, was wearing a mask, brandished a firearm, took cash and punched the clerk in the face, according to the police report.
The suspect then fled the store on foot north on U.S. 281 and headed west on Sixth Street.
Police arrested a man days later but charges were dropped due to lack of evidence.
“It’s still an active investigation,” Greer said. “If anybody has any leads on it, they can let us know.”
In the most recent robbery investigation, one suspect was wearing a dark-colored shirt; the other was wearing a gray or light-colored long-sleeved shirt and a baseball cap. Both were wearing shorts as well as masks.
