Occurred 9/9, 04:00 Aggravated Robbery 4908 Up River Rd 1109000014
Officers responded for a burglary in progress call which involved several suspects attempting to break into Lone Star Wrecker. Upon their arrival, Officers contacted the owner of the business who reported they impounded a red Dodge Durango from 2022 Treyway which was parked at a fire zone.
Once back at the wrecker yard, he began to receive threatening phone calls demanding the release of the vehicle. The owner believing the business would be burglarized hid across the street to keep an eye on his business.
Shortly thereafter, a white Nissan occupied by several Hispanic males drove up to the wrecker yard. They exited the vehicle armed with bolt cutters and cut the padlock to the front gate. One of the males walked into the wrecker yard and began to drive the Durgano out of the yard.
The owner attempted to block him in with his tow truck, but the driver drove at them almost running them over. The driver fled prior to the Officers arrival, but returned as the Officer was conducting his investigation.
Jorell Jay Armadillo (07/27/86) was positively identified by the victims and arrested. He was transported and booked at the CDC. He was charged with Aggravated Robbery. The red Dodge Durango was located by Officers and impounded.
