1 arrested, 1 sought in Valero robbery


A  name called out loud during the robbery of a Waco convenience store has helped lead to the arrest of one of the robbers, but police are still looking for his partner.

Nineteen-year-old Terionte Zamon Griffin has been charged in connection with the September 19 robbery of the Valero Corner Store at 4025 Bosque.

Two men entered the store with one of them immediately producing a silver and black handgun and pointed it at the clerk.

The second robber came in behind him and jumped over the counter to gain access to the cash registers while the first robber controlled the clerk.

When the registers would not open,  Griffin is accused of pressing the barrel of the handgun into the clerk’s neck until he opened the register.

The other robber then removed the money.

While they were leaving the store, the second robber can be heard yelling to Griffin by his nickname and this yell and name were captured on the sound portion of the store’s surveillance system.

Police were able to determine Griffin’s identity as a suspect in the robbery and took him into custody this week.

They are still looking for the second suspect who they have identified as 17-year-old Skyler Christopher Durham.

Police are asking that anyone who knows the whereabouts of Durham  call Waco police at 254-750-7500 or ask him to turn himself in.
