Final armed car robbery suspect in custody
The fourth and last armed car robbery suspect turned himself in Monday and is now in custody, according to News 92 FM.
Ronald Dean Richards was declared a fugitive with a warrant for his arrest last week after three other suspects, Dezmond Lucraig Edwards, Allen Bernard Rountree and James Van-Gerald Johnson, were taken into custody. Johnson appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded not guilty.
The four, along with three unnamed others, are suspected of being part of two separate rings that committed armed car robberies across Houston last year, including at the University on Dec. 6.
Richards is “expected to make an appearance around 10 a.m. Tuesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frances Stacy,” according to Click 2 Houston.
