Nearby security camera video showed the man get into a tan passenger vehicle with a spoiler on the trunk.

Less than an hour later, a Big D convenience store on West Main Street was robbed by two men. One of the suspects showed a gun and demanded money. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
