LUBBOCK, Texas — The Lubbock Police Department announced Wednesday that officers arrested David Gomez in connection with two separate robberies that occurred Jan. 11 and Friday.

On Tuesday, an employee told police that Gomez walked into Signature Stag Fine Menswear, 7320 Milwaukee Avenue, at 10:30 a.m., grabbed four vests and then left without paying. A police report says he then encountered a second suspect who was waiting for him in a vehicle outside the store. The two were not subsequently located.

According to another police report, Gomez targeted J. Jill, 8201 Quaker Avenue, on Friday, this time alone. He parked near the curb in front of the store’s front doors, walked in, and grabbed a large amount of clothing from the rack. He then left the stage.

After Friday’s robbery, police located his vehicle in the 5200 block of South Avenue Q Drive where he was arrested. According to the report, an officer arrested Gomez and the items stolen in the second robbery were recovered.
