On Tuesday, Laurel Police Detective Joel Sauter announced two suspects in the armed robbery of Taco Bell on Sept. 12 have been identified by anonymous tipsters and a felony warrant for armed robbery is expected to be issued after the investigation concludes. Det. Sauter said the LPD was contacted by an outside agency who had received a tip from a confidential informant identifying the male seen in the Walmart and Taco Bell surveillance photographs released last week. The agency also identified a possible male accomplice. LPD also received an additional tip from an anonymous caller who identified the same males. The informant and caller were able to identify the pickup seen at Walmart and during the robbery as the gunman’s mother’s truck. One of the males has a Montana Driver’s License and the other has a Wyoming license.

Last week LPD spoke with a customer who was at Taco Bell during the robbery and stated an acquaintance had seen the two males in the pickup in the Walmart parking lot 30 minutes prior and one was wearing a white mask. One male took the mask off and went into Walmart to make a purchase then left the scene minutes before the crime occurred. A male driver wearing the same mask ordered a large soda at Taco Bell, handed the cashier a note demanding money, pointed a handgun at them and then fled the scene in the pickup.
