Houston police say they are hot on the trail of a gang of serial robbers targeting AT&T employees.

AT&T says six of its field technicians were robbed between August and November. Police Wednesday released composite sketches of three men wanted in at least five of those robberies.

The suspects are believed to be involved in robberies at the following locations:

  • 900 Lucky, Oct. 8, 12:40pm
  • 1700 Wilburforce, Oct. 19, 4:20pm
  • 2000 Gardenia, Nov. 6, 11:30pm
  • 790 Little York, Nov. 7, 2pm
  • 1500 Tulane, Nov. 14, 10:45am

In each case, the men threatened the workers at gunpoint and took their personal belongings as well as company-issued iPhones and iPads. The same men are believed to be responsible for similar robberies outside of Houston.

All three suspects are described only as black males. The first suspect is in his late teens to early 20s, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighs between 200 and 230 pounds. The second suspect is also in his late teens to early 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, and has a normal build. The third suspect is in his 20s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and has a skinny build.

AT&T is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. You can contact the HPD Robbery Division at 281-405-6500.
