Man identified in Dollar General robbery

A Cameron man involved in two local robberies back in 2014 is now the prime suspect in another late night armed robbery.

The Cameron Police Department said an arrest warrant has been issued for 20-year-old Jordan Keshone Smith of Cameron in connection to the Monday night armed robbery of the Dollar General in the 1700 block of West 4th.

According to CPD, officers responded within a minute to the store after getting a call in reference to an armed robbery in progress. Due to the quick response, the suspect, identified as Smith, had to flee the scene empty-handed. During the ensuing investigation, officers were able to recover several items, including the weapon used.

Smith, who is a local resident, is now thought to have left the area and may be hiding out in the Killeen area, where he is thought to be suspected with several robberies there.

This is not Smith`s first run-in with the law. He was one of three men arrested in connection to a pair of 2014 armed robberies here in Cameron. Smith along with 21-year-old Giovanni Miller and 37-year-old Sherman Freeman were arrested on the heels of a robbery spree at two local convenience stores in 2014. Cameron Police were called to reports of robberies within minutes of each other that night at Cameron Mini Mart and Mike`s Convenience Store. Investigators learned that two men entered Mike`s, hopped the counter, and took an undisclosed amount of money from the register. Shortly afterward, two men matching the description of the Mike`s robbers entered the Cameron Mini Mart, forced their way behind the counter, and took and undisclosed amount of money from the register. Investigators determined the suspects had left in a blue Cadillac and quickly located the suspect vehicle on 4th Street and performed a traffic stop. Officers located the suspects inside the vehicle along with an assortment of items linking them to the robberies. Officers also executed a search warrant at a home on New House Avenue where they located more items linking the suspects to the robberies. The trio were charged at the time with two counts each of robbery. 

Anyone with information on Smith`s whereabouts should call the authorities.
