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.
