BPD says Daniel Leatherwood is one of the two suspects accused of robbing the Game X Change in Beaumont.

Police say Leatherwood, along with another man, walked into the Game X Change at 4105 Dowlen Rd in Beaumont on April 25, 2023, and robbed the store with a gun.

The two men left in a stolen silver Elantra, which was later found.

Detectives also believe that these two men may have also been involved in a robbery in Liberty County.

Justice of the Peace Ben Collins has set Leatherwood's bond at $500,000. He is being held in the Jefferson County Jail. He will have to wear an ankle monitor.

Detectives are still working to identify the other suspect, according to BPD Officer Haley Morrow.
