The robbery tookplace at the InstaCash Pawn shop at 9303 Long Point on March 16. Police say Ramfis Antonio Median, 22, Abel V. Mayoral Perez, 20, Michael A. Nazario, 22, and Luis Francicso Wayman, 32, are all charged with robbery with a deadly weapon.

Three of the suspects -- Nazario, Perez and Wayman -- are currently in custody in Orange County, Florida. Medina, who has also been identified as a suspect in another similar robbery at the EZ Pawn at 7503 Airline back on February 14, remains at large.

Police say the suspects entered the InstaCash pawn shop while posing as customers and robbed employees of cash and jewelry, using zip ties to restrain them.

Detectives in Florida were able to connect shipments of teddy bears from Houston that contained stolen jewelry to the suspects, and together with HPD's Robbery Division, were able to identify the four suspects as the men wanted in the Houston robbery.

Anyone with information about either the InstaCash Robbery or the robbery at the EZ Pawn, or anyone knowing the whereabouts of Medina is urged to call the HPD Robbery Division at 713-308-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
