Waco car dealership and customers robbed

Local News

Waco police report three armed men robbed both the business and customers present at Richard Karr Motors at 900 West Loop 340 shortly before 7:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Police spokesman Garen Bynum said they got the call at 6:48 a.m. and said three armed men wearing masks had entered the business, displayed weapons and robbed the dealership and also took items including purses, wallets and cell phones from customers.

The three then left in a white crew cab pickup described as having no tailgate going west on the Loop 340 access road.

While officers on the scene were interviewing the victims, other officers located what was believed to be the suspect vehicle, a white Ford F250 pickup that had been crashed and abandoned near the Jessep Housing area, having striking that business’s sign.

The truck was found to have been stolen out of Nolanville.

It was recovered and was being processed at the Waco Police Department crime-scene lab.

Police say there were multiple victims in the case, both customers and employees.

Though police say this was without doubt a violent crime, no one was actually injured.
