Multiple police agencies track down and arrest three teenagers after armed robbery and police chase
Fantastic police work during the overnight hours led to the arrest of three teenagers – ages 17, 18, and 19 – following an armed robbery and police chase from Grapevine to Irving.
According to the Grapevine Police Department, officers were notified of an armed robbery in a neighboring city. Officers proactively set up surveillance on a 7-11 store located at 1700 William D. Tate as a precaution. About 30 minutes after the first robbery was reported, three suspects wearing hoodies showed up to the 7-11 store. Officers approached the entrance of the store and the three suspects ran out.
One suspect fled from the store on foot, but two jumped into a vehicle and took off. They led police on a chase from Grapevine into Irving. Three people from the vehicle fled on foot off Bellah Court in Irving.
Police officers from Grapevine, Irving, Southlake, and potentially others set up a perimeter near the bail location and located all suspects. The suspect who fled from the store on foot was also tracked down and apprehended.
One of the suspects had a backpack with a gun and cash inside.
All three male suspects face charges of aggravated robbery, and potentially other charges. A 15-year-old girl was also taken into custody for questioning.
These suspects may be related to other armed robberies across north Texas.
