WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL)— A Walters man is jailed in Wichita County for a convenience store robbery in Wichita Falls reported in 2018.
Ronnie Heath Teakell was booked on Monday with a $150,000 bond.
Police said they got a panic alarm from the 7-Eleven at 4404 Northwest Freeway on April 29, 2018.
They said when they arrived the clerk was crying and told them a white male in a camo face mask came in, and he had his left hand covered with a Crown Royal bag.
She said he was pointing that hand at her like there was a gun in the bag.
She also said he took about $113 dollars from the register, and $306 worth of lottery tickets.
An officer contacted the lottery commission for a list of those tickets and asked to be notified if someone tried to redeem any.
A short time later, some of the stolen tickets were scanned at another Wichita Falls store.
Video from that store showed a white male trying to redeem tickets.
That same day the officer said he got a call from a man who said Teakell was bragging about robbing a store and getting a bunch of lottery tickets.
The officer compared Teakell’s Facebook photo to the surveillance footage and determined they matched.
