Tulsa Panera Bread Robbery Suspect Is TPD's Most Wanted
TULSA, Oklahoma - Marquis J. Clark is Tulsa Police Department's Most Wanted for the week. Clark is wanted for five felony counts including first degree robbery and shooting with intent to kill at a Panera Bread on Sunday, April 29, 2012.
Tulsa Police say Clark, 23, robbed the Tulsa Hills Panera Bread at 71st and U.S. Highway 75, then opened fire on a car in the parking lot.
Authorities say Clark told employees he had a gun and took off with a bag of money. As he crossed through the parking lot, the money bag broke.
"So bills and coins and things like that were blowing through the parking lot, so it probably wasn't a big haul that they got away with," Public Relations Officer Leland Ashley said at the time.
That's when Clark allegedly opened fire on a red SUV in the bakery's parking lot. Police thought he might be trying to get rid of a potential witness to the crime.
"It could have ricocheted into any one of these buildings - a child or anybody," Ashley said.
Clark got into a red Cobra Mustang and got away.
Tulsa's Most Wanted is described as a black male, age 23, 5'11" in height and 185 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
The felony warrants for Clark total $290,000, according to Tulsa Police. There are also five misdemeanor warrants out for his arrest.
There is a cash reward for information leading to the arrest of Marquis J. Clark. Call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS or text a tip to CRIMES (274637) and begin your message with Tip918.
