Detectives say they've arrested a Texas City man who allegedly was caught with items stolen two days earlier during a robbery at an assisted living apartment.

League City and Texas City police arrested Joshua Fontenot in the 5700 block of Woodrow Street Wednesday evening, according to a League City Police Department statement. He is charged with aggravated robbery and burglary with intent to commit a felony.

Detectives say on Monday, Fontenot and another suspect robbed a woman in the 1000 block of Columbia Memorial Parkway in League City. One of the suspects kicked in her door, pointed a black handgun at her and ordered her to the floor.

The two suspects rummaged through her apartment and stole several things, including her credit cards. The cards were used at several stores in the League City and La Marque.

When Fontenot was arrested Wednesday, detectives found some of the stuff stolen from the woman's apartment in his possession.

Fontenot is being held on bonds totaling $200,000.

League City police say they're preparing warrant paperwork for a second suspect.
