Plano police are asking the public to watch for a man who was dressed as a woman when he attacked two employees at the Family Dollar store on Ave. K in Plano recently.

Crime Stoppers offers a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest and indictment.

What happened? Each employee received medical attention and stitches after battling the armed robber. One employee was hit three times with a pistol during the aggravated robbery.


Plano Police said have identified the suspect as 30-year-old Everett Travane Haile of Houston in the crime in the 1800 block of Ave. K. Contact the Plano Police Department at 972-941-2148 or Crime Stoppers at 877-373-8477.

Employees said the man in women’s clothes went into the store and asked for shaving cream. When the man put the shaving cream on the counter, he put a gun on top of his purse. The robber wanted the cashier to open the register.

The man fired the gun, and a fight between the store employee and her 5-8, 188-pound attacker began. A second employee raced in to help his manager.

The robber eventually ran out, but came back in looking for his purse, and the employees chased him out the door again.

In addition to police, the McKinney Fire Department and PHI helicopter responded to a major accident on Highway 380 on Thursday night about 30 minutes before midnight. From a distance, it appears that a small vehicle ran into the back of a flatbed truck that had stopped just west of Lake Forest Drive. The highway was shut down on both sides of 380.

Melissa man sentenced in sexual assault of teenage relative

Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis announced that 41-year-old Harold Clarrett of Melissa, Texas, has been sentenced by a Collin County jury to 15 years in prison after a guilty plea to the jury that lasted three days and concluded on Wednesday.

The case before retired Judge Richard Davis was prosecuted by Assistant Criminal District Attorneys Claire Miranda and Crystal Levonius.

The jury convicted Clarrett and sentenced him to 15 years on each of the three counts of sexual assault of a child and two counts of indecency with a child.

Judge Davis ran all of the 15-year sentences concurrently.

The jury also assessed a $10,000 fine for each count. All of the charges were second-degree felonies with a punishment range of anywhere from two years to 20 years in prison.

Testimony at trial recounted that during the summer and fall of 2010, Clarrett engaged in sexual relations with a 14-year-old female relative.

The prosecutors said Clarrett confessed to police that his sexual relationship with the child continued for up to six months. Police said Clarrett tried to justify his conduct by stating to police that he was trying to satisfy the child’s sexual urges so she wouldn’t get pregnant.

Prosecutors said Clarrett had a history of neglectful supervision and physical abuse of children in his care.

Testimony at trial also showed that the girl, now 16, had been shuffled around from relative to relative throughout her life and had lived with Clarrett off and on from the age of 6.
