Lloyd Cryer, the 74 year old pawn shop owner who was robbed and shot in his Rosenberg store last month, has died from his injuries.
Rosenberg police are reaching out to the public for any information regarding the aggravated robbery and shooting of Cryer in his Cry Babies’ Pawn Shop back in mid September. Rosenberg assistant police chief Dallis Warren said, “Late Friday evening, October 1, pawn shop owner Lloyd Cryer passed away as a result of the wounds he received during the robbery.”
On September 16, Cryer told police he arrived for work at his pawn shop in the 4600 block of Avenue H in Rosenberg, about 9am. He said he was met at the back door by a black male who had a ‘football player’ build. He further described his assailant as being 6'2", about 270 pounds, between the ages of 30-40, clean shaven and bald.
Chief Warren said Cryer told police his attacker displayed an old style revolver and stated “I’m not here to do your grass, let’s go get the cash”. The suspect entered through the rear of the business and physically forced Cryer to open the safe. After the safe was opened, the two men were involved in a struggle and Cryer was shot once in the chest. Police found Cryer collapsed on the floor of his store shortly after noon on the day he was shot. Since Cryer succumbed to his injuries the case has gone from an aggravated robbery to a homicide.
Anyone with information is asked to please call the Rosenberg Police Department, Detective Randall Leonhardt at (832) 595-3724 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers (281)342-TIPS.
