Police look for robber caught on video at east Houston smoke shop

Homiez Vape and Smoke Shop off of the East Freeway has only been in business for about seven months.

On November 28, a man who appeared to be a customer became something else.

"He didn't really look suspicious at all," said employee Christian Cardenas. "He was walking around looking at things, talking to the actual cashier at the time, really didn't ring an alarm or anything."

When the clerk turned her back, the man pulled a gun and demanded the money from the cash register.

He can be seen clearly on the surveillance video, and anyone who knows him can put a name to the face.

Those with information about his identity should call the Houston Police Department Robbery Division or Crime Stoppers.
