This Isn't Good

Killeen Police responded to a robbery at a local pawnshop this morning.
Police were sent to Handy Loan pawnshop at about 10:15 a.m. after employees there reported an armed robbery.

Employees told News 10 a slender black man entered the store, displayed a weapon, and then grabbed an armload of firearms and fled.

Police are searching the area around the 1400 block of East Veteran's Memorial Blvd., attempting to locate a suspect.

The man was wearing a black shirt and khaki pants.

He left the store on foot, but it is not known if he had a vehicle close by to aid in his escape. Source:

While pawn businesses get robbed occasionally, this one is unusual in the target appears to be firearms. Let's hope the firearms don't end up being used in other crimes.
