Crime Files: Thomas Garner Jr.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) –   You may have seen Thomas Garner Jr. before.  We showed him to you last week in this surveillance video allegedly robbing the Racing Mart on St. James Place in Springfield.

“You can see someone robbing the Racing Mart, it’s great video.  He’s standing there, then brandishes a gun tells the clerk to give him the money and you can see people in the back running into coolers to get out of harms way,” explained Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney.

The robber took off with the money and the clerk called the cops.

“We got this video gave it to you guys, you aired it and the next day we were inundated with calls of who it is,” added Delaney.

That’s how they came up with Thomas Garner.  Police believe he is still in Western Mass.

“We know he is armed and dangerous and he could be thinking of doing this again.  So we need your viewers to find him again like they picked him out when we were looking for him,” said Delaney

So keep your eyes open for this wanted criminal your tip could land him behind bars.  If you have any information about Thomas Garner you’re asked to call police or text them an anonymous tip at  crimes or  2-7-4-6-3-7 and in the message type solve and your tip.

    Thomas Garner ofter frequents 82 Malden Apt 3L where his girlfriend lives, this last week one of strip bar girls of the seven that stay there rang my doorbell because he tore his out. Then his freind a black male with dreadlocks opened the door with a gun next door wearing the same black hoodie or jacket with all the designs and insignia to let her in. Thomas garner or the last name Garner often frequents the mailbox when the postal person arrives, The left side names and post boxes are often shady and mislabeled for as to who lives there or which apartment the mail goes to. And the postal boxes have been shady for a while now. Thomas often drives one of two gold cars or a dung brown subaru with a stereo systen fitted in back.The seven nightclub girls that hang out there and make comments need to not take that out on me but their womanizing johnies they bring over for sex all the time or their cutomers instead from the strip bar. .
