UPDATE: Arrest Made in Wine Cooler Armed Robbery

MOBILE, AL (WKRG) —

UPDATE: Thursday afternoon, 35-year-old James Holt was arrested for the Mobile gas station robbery. Holt was brought to Mobile Metro Jail.


Police are asking for the public’s assistance to identify two people accused of an armed robbery at a Mobile gas station.

The Mobile Police Cyber Intelligence Unit released four photos on Facebook of the two suspects, showing a white male, a white female and their vehicle from the incident on Tuesday night.

The vehicle the two suspects left the gas station in.

According to police, the couple walked into the Shell gas station at 750 Azalea Road shortly before 9:14pm. The female walked into to the restroom while the male took a wine cooler and concealed it in his pants. When the clerk confronted the suspect, officers say he pulled a black pistol from his pocket and threatened to shoot the clerk.

The male and female left the store with the wine cooler and drove away in what appears to be a Ford Taurus.

“We would love to return his flip flops that he left behind. A cash reward is available!!!,” said the Mobile Police Cyber Intelligence Unit in a Facebook post.

The white male is seen in the photos wearing a black t-shirt, plaid shorts and flip-flops.  The female, also while, is seen wearing a yellow top with her stomach exposed, pajama pants, and flip-flops.
