Police are continuing to search for a suspect that robbed Jack in the Box at gunpoint Monday, Jan. 22.

According to information released by the Princeton Police Department, at about 5:50 a.m. an unknown black male entered the eatery located on Hwy. 380 and Second Street. He presented a weapon and demanded money from employees at the store.

The employees were forced onto the floor while the manager was escorted to the back of the store to secure the money.

The suspect ultimately left the location in a newer white Dodge Charger traveling westbound towards Mckinney. Nobody was injured and investigators are actively working the case.

“We believe that this is linked to some other crimes that have occurred in the area,” Police Chief James Waters said. “We hardly ever have these types of crimes in Princeton.”

Princeton is working with the Collin County Fusion Center to help identify the suspect and bring him to justice.

Photos of the suspect and the vehicle can be seen both on The Princeton Herald’s and The Princeton Police Department’s Facebook pages.

Anyone being able to identify the vehicle or suspect is asked to call investigators at 972-736-3901.
