Abilene man indicted for robbing convenience store across from Dyess Air Force Base
ABILENE, Texas —
An Abilene man was indicted on Thursday by a Taylor County grand jury for stealing beer from a convenience store at gunpoint.
According to the indictment, Miguel Angel Fierro, 30, of Abilene, walked into the Stripes convenience store across the street from Dyess Air Force Base on July 1 and grabbed a 30-pack of Bud Light.
When the store's clerk tried to stop Fierro, authorities said that Fierro lifted his shirt to reveal a revolver in his waistband and said, “nah bro.”
Fierro then grabbed another can of Bud Light, ran out of the store and hopped into a sliver Chevrolet Impala.
A short time later, authorities were called about a man with a gun at the Whataburger restaurant on South 1st Street.
As authorities arrived at Whataburger, Fierro walked out of the restaurant and sat in his car.
When authorities approached the car, they said that Fierro reached toward the back seat and authorities then ordered him to get out of his car.
During a search of Fierro’s car, authorities found the stolen beer and the gun.
