MONTGOMERY COUNTY On February 3, 2014, at approximately 7:25 PM, Patrol Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a strong arm robbery at the Walmart located in the 1000 block of Sawdust Road.

Deputies learned that a female and her eight year old son were loading items into their vehicle in the parking lot when they were approached by two males. The males grabbed the victim’s purse and a brief struggle ensued before the suspects were able to pull the purse away and drive off.

An individual that witnessed the robbery followed the suspect vehicle and provided the license plate to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center. A Trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety observed the suspect vehicle traveling south on Interstate 45 and stopped the vehicle in the area of Interstate 45 and FM 2920. The complainant’s property was located and recovered from inside the suspect vehicle.

As a result of an investigation, all three occupants in the suspect vehicle were arrested and charged with robbery.
