Beaumont teen charged in Hardin County robbery

An armed robbery was reported at Batson Grocery around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, Hardin County Sheriff Mark Davis tells KFDM 6 News.

A 17-year-old female from Beaumont is facing aggravated robbery charges after an armed robbery was reported at Batson Grocery early Wednesday.

The robbery was reported around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, Hardin County Sheriff Mark Davis tells KFDM 6 News.

Two armed men entered the store and fired several shots, but Davis says he does not believe the gunmen were aiming at anyone.

They fled in a vehicle before Sour Lake police tracked them down as they headed toward Beaumont.

A chase went through Beaumont and ended in Cheek, when the two men fled on foot into the woods.

The teenage female was taken into custody from inside of the car.

She was taken to Hardin County for questioning, Davis says.

Several canines and a helicopter were used in the search, but it was unsuccessful. They have called off the search since the gunmen no longer appear to be in the woods.
