Pearland Police team up with HPD to apprehend serial robber

PPDOn Friday (July 17) at approximately 1:40 p.m., Pearland Police Dispatch received a 9-1-1 call of a robbery in progress at the Sonic located at 7031 W. Broadway.

A Pearland Police officer arrived at the location as the call was dispatched and was advised that the suspect, who wore a white shirt over his face and approached Sonic carrying a weed eater, likely to avoid suspicion while walking with his face covered, had fled the scene on foot toward Food Town, located at 7121 W. Broadway.  Other witnesses advised that the suspect fled from the Food Town parking lot in a black 4-door vehicle. Nothing was taken from Sonic.

From witness descriptions of the suspect vehicle, Pearland PD’s Crime Analyst was able to link the suspect to a series of robberies that occurred in and around the Houston area.

The suspect was ultimately identified as Michael Francis Grant, 31. Grant was taken into custody by the Houston Police Department on July 24. Grant was charged in connection with the Sonic robbery on July 28. Bond was set at $500,000.

Third Woodforest Bank Robber Apprehended

PPDOn July 22, 2015 at approximately 11:30 a.m., two suspects entered a Kroger in the 11000 block of Shadow Creek Parkway and proceeded to the Woodforest National Bank branch inside.  One of the suspects jumped the counter while the other acted as a lookout. A third suspect waited in a car in the parking lot. After taking an undisclosed amount of cash the suspects ran out of store and were seen fleeing in a maroon four-door vehicle.

It was later determined that the suspects drove to an area hotel where they picked up a second vehicle and went north on SH 288. Responding Pearland Police Department units located the maroon vehicle and arrested the driver, Kevin Pool. The second vehicle, a black Chevrolet Camaro convertible with the two remaining suspects was not found.

Evidence recovered from the scene quickly identified the two remaining suspects as Tadarrius Royal and Malachi Muhammad AKA Timothy White. Tadarrius Royal was taken into custody by the Houston Police Department on July 23. On July 29, Pearland Police arrested Malachi Muhammad without incident.
