Waco police are looking for two suspects that are “armed and dangerous.”

According to Waco police, 22-year-old Javon Lamont Arnett and 23-year-old Jared Jamal Mays were involved in the Dollar General call that happened on July 16.

Arnett was armed with a handgun and fought a Waco officer. Two other suspects fled with money and drugs. An AK-47 with a drum magazine was also recovered.

Mays eluded officers that afternoon and a woman was located hiding in a wooded area.

Waco police said the two suspects both have gang ties, numerous arrests and convictions for weapon offenses.

Arnett is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a public servant, resisting arrest, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful carrying of weapons.

Mays is wanted for unlawful possession of a firearm, evading arrest, possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying of weapons.

If you have any information on their whereabouts, they are asked to contact local law enforcement or 911.
