The man robbed Friendswood, Missouri City, Houston, Harris County and Montgomery County pharmacies.
All under the guise of being a police officer.
Wearing an unauthorized POLICE shirt, the man, now identified as 32-year-old Travis Lee Wilson, reportedly robbed the locations by gaining the trust of the various stores’ employees.
Along with the faux police hat/shirt, real authorities said Wilson carried a fake plastic badge and toy gun.
After Eyewitness News ran a report on the impostor on Tuesday, a viewer reportedly alerted police to information leading to the suspect’s arrest.
According to the sheriff’s office, a vehicle tied to the robbery played a part in his apprehnsion.
They further said man’s latest robberies occurred at two Walgreens stores near the Harris County/Montgomery County, where they recovered several patches of Fentanyl investigators believe he took in the incidents.
The sheriff’s office said a witness told authorities the same man targeted Hurricane Harvey victims in August, posing as a police officer, telling them to vacate their properties.
