Cops Catch Curling Iron Crook

On November 6, 2015, at about 9:30 p.m., the suspect, Arrieus Warren B/M/1-30-85 entered the Subway restaurant located in the 300 block of West Kiest Boulevard. Once inside, the suspect demanded money from the cash register.  He made gestures to the cashier that he had a gun under his hoodie.

After taking the cash from the Subway restaurant, the suspect fled the location on foot and ran into the neighborhood located near Interstate-35. The suspect then tried to carjack an individual, but the carjacking victim realized that the suspect was not holding a real gun and confronted the suspect, which thwarted the attempt.   

Upon officers’ arrival to the neighborhood, they were flagged down by a citizen to report a Black male that was seen running into storage shed located in the 300 block of West Corning Avenue.

As officers approached the shed, they spotted the suspect.  After making eye contact with the officers, the suspect took off on foot. The officers reacted quickly by setting up a perimeter around the immediate area, and found the suspect in no time. The suspect was still in possession of money that he had taken from the Subway restaurant along with a pair of curling irons that he had used to portray as a gun.  The suspect was arrested and placed in Lew Sterrett Jail and this incident was documented on case numbers 259219-2015 and 259161-2015.Curling_iron_2
