A motivated teenager allegedly robbed multiple Dallas businesses within a 50-minute window Thursday morning before being arrested by police.

Around 8:51 a.m., a man DPD believes was Joshua Mora, 19, held up the first of the six convenience stores in the Skillman-Abrams area of Dallas at gunpoint. He apparently moved from business to business before concluding the string of robberies around 9:42 a.m.

A witness at one of the convenience stores was able to provide a description of the suspect and his vehicle, as well as a possible license plate number.

A few minutes after the last robbery, police found a vehicle matching the given description and attempted a traffic stop.

After a short chase, police apprehended Mora and determined he matched the description given by the witness.

Following a preliminary investigation, police charged Mora with six counts of aggravated robbery and took him to the Dallas County jail, DPD said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Mora was still being held at the jail on a $600,000 bond.

The locations robbed were:

  • 8:51 a.m.      8302 Abrams (Exxon)
  • 8:54 a.m.      8310 Abrams (Walgreens)
  • 9:15 a.m.      8240 Abrams (EZ Shop)
  • 9:24 a.m.      6769 Abrams (7-11)
  • 9:30 a.m.      6751 Abrams (710 Vapers)
  • 9:42 a.m.      6060 Skillman (QuikTrip)

No injuries were reported.

This young man clearly is very smart but very misguided.
He should be properly guided to use all his capability to be come an exceptional citizen. He should go under proper guidance and monitoring and not in jail.

He needs to be treated as an armed criminal. He is on his way to the pen, and doesn’t need counseling, he needs jail.
