[ARCHIVED] Multiple Suspects Arrested for Armed Robbery

At about 10:52 in the evening of February 5th, the Kerrville Police Department responded to a report of an armed robbery in the 600 block of Lois St. The victim in this case was able to describe the getaway vehicle used by the robbery suspects.

Officers were able to gather intelligence about the vehicle by reviewing security footage from a nearby gas station. As officers worked diligently to identify the vehicle and driver seen on the security footage, other officers responded to a report of a second armed robbery in the 100 block of Methodist Encampment.

In this robbery, the male victim was severely beaten and flown to San Antonio for the immediate treatment of his injuries. However, despite the injuries he sustained, he was able to identify one of the suspects by name to responding officers.

Using the information gathered from both victims, officers were able to fully identify one of the suspects. Officers then responded to a residence frequented by the suspect and found a gold Hyundai Santé Fe parked in an alley occupied by several individuals.

Officers were able to detain a total of five individuals all of which were seated inside the vehicle. Those suspects, including the suspect identified by name were transported to the Kerrville Police Department for questioning.

A search warrant was procured for the vehicles which lead to the recovery of valuable evidence in this case. Investigators with the Kerrville Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Unit interviewed the five suspects at the Kerrville Police Department

As a result of these interviews, Investigators were able to affirmatively link these subjects to a robbery at Tuesday Morning, a local business, on January 29th.

All five subjects have been arrested and are charged with three counts of Aggravated Robbery. Additional charges may be filed upon the conclusion of this investigation.

Of the five suspects, four are adults and one is a juvenile. The adult suspects are identified as, Spencer Fread (18), Triston Arizola (18), Kerissa Valenzuela (19), and Francisco Salazar (17).
