The first crime happened at the Mr. T convenience store on Bowman Springs Road around 7:15 p.m. The robbers are then believed to have moved on to the Lucky Lady convenience store on Little Road and then held up a Conoco on West Arkansas Lane.
While Arlington police were on the trail of the suspects, it was an emergency call by a citizen — reporting a suspicious person at a Valero convenience store near Interstate-20 and Kelly Elliott Road — that ended the suspect’s crime wave.
Responding to the 911 call officers arrived just as three male suspects were running out of the store.READ MORE: Discover DFW: Fort Worth Museum Of Science And History
One suspect, carrying a rifle, fled on foot and was taken into custody after a brief chase, during which he allegedly threw the gun down.
The other two suspects fled in a car, but police identified potential addresses where they may have went and contacted Fort Worth police. Officers found the men at one of the addresses, still sitting in the car that had fled from the scene in Arlington.
All three suspects — later identified as Shondrick Roberson-Davenport, Braylon Cobb and Dreshun Stafford — are in custody.MORE NEWS: Nebraska Governor Defends Move To Send Troopers To Texas At The Request Of Gov. Abbott
