Nocona Police seek robbery, theft suspect

Nocona Police are searching for Bobby Lyn Buck, a suspect wanted for questioning in a stolen vehicle incident and an aggravated robbery.

It appears the two incidents occurred one right after another on Aug. 2.

Police Chief Kent Holcomb said Bob Mitchell was visiting his wife’s grave at Nocona Cemetery in the early afternoon on Aug. 2. Mitchell heard his car start and then a suspect put it into reverse.

Mitchell’s cell phone and money were still in the vehicle. The vehicle, is a 20016 white Buick Lacrosse, has not yet been found.

Police also are investigating an aggravated robbery complaint made at Family Dollar, 525 U.S. Highway 82 East on July 28.

The chief reports the store manager confronted a male suspect at the front of the store asking him what he put in his shorts.

The suspect reportedly held up a knife making threats before running out the back door as employees chased him.

The description of the 49-year-old in the robbery matched the one of the suspect in the stolen vehicle.

Holcomb said a warrant for a complaint of aggravated robbery has been issued for Buck.
