FAYETTE COUNTY, Texas – On Wednesday, Fayette County legislators arrested suspects accused of a robbery at Cedar Park as they drove east toward Houston.
Sheriff Keith Korenek said deputies received information about two suspicious vehicles traveling together on Highway 71. The suspects were believed to be monitoring a small business owner before following them and later assaulted and robbed the victim before fleeing, MPs said.
MPs followed the suspects before conducting traffic stops on the two vehicles in conjunction with the La Grange Police Department.
The suspects in each vehicle were arrested and one of the vehicles contained a large sum of money believed to have been stolen in the robbery, along with equipment used to monitor targets, MPs said.
The suspects, vehicles and evidence were taken to the Dan R. Beck Justice Center before being turned over to investigators from the Cedar Park Police Department.
