5 serial robbers caught after chase in NW Harris Co., deputies say

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Five men have been arrested in connection with nearly two dozen aggravated robberies in Harris County.

Deputies were chasing a vehicle around noon Wednesday in the area of Mills Road and FM 1960.

The suspects got out of the car and took off on foot.

They were eventually caught at an apartment complex. Two of the suspects were bitten by a police dog.

"I saw where the police started arresting the guy right here on the top, and they started pulling him out, and they had one guy on the ground bleeding from where the dog bit him and everything," said Isha Aaron, who lives in the complex.

Investigators said a robbery at a T-Mobile store on the 12000 block of Jones Road led to the short pursuit.

"As the robbery was in progress, there was a tracker in one of the phones. They activated the tracker and notified dispatch. Our deputies got behind the vehicle, followed it, pursued, and they crashed out over in the bayou," said Lt. Jeff Stauber of the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

Investigators believe the group was responsible for a robbery at Corner Bakery and at a Subway near 249 and Spring Cypress on Tuesday. Surveillance video from the Subway showed an armed suspect who bore a striking resemblance to the suspect caught on video during the Kolache Factory robbery Wednesday morning.
