An arrest has been made in last Friday's robbery that took place at the Sally Beauty Supply at 4505 South Medford Drive in Lufkin. The apprehension was made on Tuesday by the Corrigan Police Department.

William Longpre, 44, has been identified as the man who allegedly robbed Sally Beauty Supply at gunpoint. A warrant for aggravated robbery was served by the Corrigan Police, then officers with the Lufkin Police Department transported Longpre to the Angelina County Jail for booking.


Longpre was implicated after detectives gathered evidence connecting him to the crime. The suspect reportedly walked into the store around 10:30 a.m. Friday, displayed a gun, and threatened the clerk. He then left with hair trimmers, clippers, and an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.

He remained in Angelina County Jail Wednesday afternoon on a $350,000 bond.
