Muskogee Officers Search for Suspects After Dollar Tree Robbery

Officers in Muskogee are searching for an individual Wednesday that robbed a local store at gunpoint.

A report from the Muskogee Police Department states that the incident happened late Tuesday at the Dollar Tree located on West Shawnee.

Closing procedures were just beginning when an unidentified male and female entered the store. Officers were told that the female purchased an item and then walked out of the store, but that the male walked to the back of the building at the same time.

"One of the store clerks then checked the bathrooms as part of the store closing procedures and was confronted by the male who pointed a handgun at the clerk," the report from MPD described.

Officers were told that the male suspect robbed the store of cash and personal property belonging to one of the clerks, including a cellphone and cash. Both the male and female left the area on foot with no vehicle description available.

The female suspect was described as being a 30-year-old black female, thin build and approximately 5 foot 6 inches. The male was reported to be a 30-year-old black male around 155 pounds wearing black shoes and a black shirt with a silver design on it.
