Two local women, one teen arrested in Tyler

Three females allegedly held up Walmart store at gunpoint

Two Shreveport women and a teenage girl are behind bars in Smith County, Texas, after being arrested by Tyler, Texas Police.


The suspects, Breonna Poole, 22, and Justice Poole, 18, and a 14-year-old juvenile, are accused of entering a Tyler Walmart, displaying a weapon and taking an undisclosed amount of cash, holding a Walmart employee at gunpoint.


It happened just before noon Saturday, and a pedestrian was hit by the fleeing suspects’ vehicle and treated on scene for minor injuries.  The pedestrian told officers that he was attempting to stop the suspects as they were making their getaway when he was struck suffering minor injuries. 


The vehicle that struck him was described as a dark colored four door sedan, occupied with two subjects. Minutes after the robbery took place, a Tyler police officer located a vehicle matching the description and made a traffic stop


When officers made contact with the occupants inside the vehicle, a 2010, Dodge Avenger, they determined the women were involved in the robbery.  Officers located the cash bags with money and other items of evidence. 


The weapon involved in the incident was recovered by a store manager outside in the parking lot.  It was a BB gun that resembled a real handgun.


The Pooles were taken into custody and transported to Smith County Jail, while the juvenile was taken to the Juvenile Attention Center.  They are charged with Aggravated Battery.
