FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas—Three Houston men who were suspected in a January armed robbery have been arrested, according to the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to an armed robbery call in the 6500 block of Kendall Creek Drive in the New Territory subdivision on January 25.
Detectives met with three victims who said they were standing in front of one of their homes and saw a vehicle drive past them. Then, the same vehicle came back and stopped.
One of the three suspects got out of the car and pointed a handgun at the three people and ordered them to the ground. The suspects took wallets and cell phones, returned to the vehicle and left.
A thorough investigation ensued with detectives from the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and Houston Police Department working together on this case and others that may involve these suspects.
The vehicle used in the New Territory robbery turned out to be a stolen car case out of Houston Police Department. After exchanging information with the other agencies, the case progressed until all three suspects were identified.
Two of the suspects are already in the custody of the Houston Police Department in connection with other cases. Those suspects are Trevon Davis, 18, and Melvin Delane, 17. The third suspect, Jermaine Smith, 17, was arrested by Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputies on a warrant. All three suspects are from Houston.
