  • Press Release #022316(19)-Police Obtain Arrest Warrants for Robbery Suspects

    Tue, Feb 23, 2016 - 03:10 PM

    Detectives with the San Angelo Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division have obtained Arrest Warrants for two 18-year-old San Angelo men, Desmond Joshua Dixon and Bentley Green for their role in a Robbery that occurred just before 4:00 p.m. in the Marshall's parking lot, 4001 Sunset Drive on February 17, 2016.
    Police were called to the location last Wednesday to investigate the report of a vehicle burglary turned robbery. When they arrived, they located a 40-year-old female victim who was suffering from apparent minor injuries she received when she was struck by the suspect's vehicle. San Angelo Fire Department Medics responded and treated the victim at the scene.
    The victim told Officers she left Marshall's and discovered an unknown man burglarizing her vehicle. After she confronted the suspect, the man reportedly ran off and got into a nearby red/maroon-colored Honda passenger car that was being driven by another man. The vehicle then struck the victim as it fled the parking lot. Witnesses at the scene confirmed the victim's story and reported the suspect vehicle was last seen headed towards the Target shopping center.
    Investigators later developed Dixon and Green as persons of interest and recovered some of the victim's stolen property. Subsequent to the investigation, Investigators applied for Arrest Warrants for the pair.
    At approximately 12:30 this afternoon, Police located Green at a residence in the 2500 block of N. Van Buren. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with Robbery and another outstanding Warrant.
    At this time, Dixon has not been located. If you have any information about Dixon's whereabouts, call Detective Noel Anderson at (325) 657-4344 or Crime Stoppers at (325) 658-HELP.

    39-year-old Jeremy Harris of San Angelo has been charged with Burglary and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon after an incident at a local 7-11 convenience store yesterday evening.
    Around 8:00 p.m. on Monday, February 22, 2016, San Angelo Police were called to assist Angelo State University Police who were out with an armed subject at the 7-11 Convenience Store located at 1719 Kenwood Street.
    ASU Police detained Harris after the store's clerk reportedly flagged down the Officer, who coincidentally arrived to the location to fuel up his patrol vehicle. Harris, who was inside the store when the ASU Officer arrived, was in possession of an unloaded handgun.
    After speaking with the clerk, Officers learned Harris entered the store and began opening and consuming various food items. The clerk noticed Harris had a gun in his waistband, texted a friend to call the police, and then left the store upon seeing ASU Police. Upon learning about Harris and the weapon, the ASU Officer immediately entered the store and took Harris into custody without incident. The ASU Officer also located evidence that Harris had opened and taken an undisclosed amount of money from the Store's safe.
    At the request of ASUPD, SAPD Detective James Hernandez was called to the scene to assist with the investigation. Harris was charged with Burglary, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and an outstanding Arrest Warrant for Motion to Revoke Parole/Probation Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and transported to the Tom Green County Jail. Once at the jail, Harris complained of medical issues and Officers were advised to transport Harris to Shannon Medical Center for evaluation and transported back to jail once cleared by hospital staff.
    Prior to the incident at 7-11, Harris was reported to have entered the Stripes Convenience Store located at 1802 South Bryan and consumed one of the store's ice cream cones before he left without paying. Harris was subsequently issued a Criminal Trespass Warning from Stripes.
