Press Release #080114(01)-Two Arrested, Two Sought In Recent Robbery
San Angelo Police are searching for two men in connection to a home invasion robbery that occurred on Monday, July 28, 2014, just after 1:30 a.m. in in the 1600 block of Volney Street.
Victor Lopez, Jr. (DOB 10-06-92) and Jarrett Jackson (DOB 12-08-91) of San Angelo are being sought by San Angelo Police for their involvement in the incident. Detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division obtained Arrest Warrants for the pair earlier this week after an ongoing investigation. Two other San Angelo men who were involved, Johnnie Lee Wilson, Jr. (DOB 03-20-96) and Aaron Holcomb (DOB 11-02-92), have already been arrested.
Police believe the robbery was foiled when one of the suspects, who acted as the lookout, alerted the others to the arrival of police who were dispatched to the residence for the report of an active burglar alarm. It is believed that the suspects unknowingly activated the alarm when they forced entry into the residence. When police arrived to the residence, they were met by a 27-year old female victim who said the suspects fled just prior to their arrival. The woman provided a description for the suspects and police began to search the area.
San Angelo Police K-9 Units also responded to the scene and during their track, K-9 Officer Fincher and his Police Service Dog Fritz located several items of discarded clothing along with a handgun. Police believe the suspects discarded the items as they fled the scene. One suspect, Wilson, was located a short time later and taken into custody. He was charged with Aggravated Robbery, outstanding City Warrants and Fail to Identify Giving False/Fictitious Information and transported to the Tom Green County Jail. No other suspects were located during the search.
While at the scene, police spoke with a 27-yar-old male victim who said he had been asleep inside the residence when he woke up to the sound of the home security alarm just before being struck in the head with a handgun by one of the suspects. The suspects then demanded money and began to collect various electronics from the residence, but ran off empty handed when police arrived. The male victim was treated at the scene for his head injury. The 27-year-old woman, who initially spoke with officers, witnessed the events along with her child. Both were unharmed.
Police have learned that this incident was not random and the victim was the intended target. Police have established that the victim and suspects are associates.
Holcomb was located and arrested on July 30 after Detectives with the Department's Criminal Investigations Division and Special Operations Section served an Arrest Warrant for Aggravated Robbery at his residence in the unit block of W. 12th Street. Holcomb was taken into custody without incident.
