The Anna Police Department is imploring residents to be on the lookout for a robbery suspect. Nigel Woodard, a 17-year-old resident from Anna, is wanted by police for allegedly spraying another male with an unkown substance.


On May 9, Woodard met with a person at the Oak Hollow swimming pool on Oak Hollow Drive to sell and item he had listed on Offer Up – a buy, sale, trade app.


During the course of the meeting, Anna Police Chief Jeff Caponera said Woodard allegedly sprayed the victim in the eyes with what is presumed to be pepper spray. Woodard then ran off. That was when the victim realized Woodard had sold him an empty box, Caponera explained.


Woodard currently has an outstanding felony warrant. The warrant holds a $10,000 bond.


The Anna Police Department is asking anybody with any information on the whereabouts of Woodard to please contact Anna Police Investigator Tracy Foster. Citizens can also submit anonymous tip through Anna’s Crime Stoppers program at www.P3tips.com.
