    A Texas man, Tarrell Donald Nowlin, 53, pleaded guilty to a federal violation related to the armed robbery of a Beaumont gas station, announced U.S. Attorney Damien M. Diggs for the Eastern District of Texas.

    The guilty plea comes after an investigation into a robbery reported on January 16, 2024, at the Speedway Gas Station on Eastex Freeway in Beaumont.

    According to court documents, a dark-colored Dodge Caravan pulled into the gas station parking lot, and a masked suspect entered the store brandishing a silver revolver.
