Breaking: Man robbed at gunpoint, suspects arrested
UPDATE: After investigation, one of the males arrested will be released from jail because he wasn’t the third suspect involved in the aggravated robbery. Authorities still believe there is a possible third suspect and the investigation is still ongoing. The other two males have been identified as Frank Darrell Fones III, 23, from Ennis, and Daniel Aaron Anderson, 34, from Bedford each charged with Aggravated Robbery.
ENNIS- After robbing a 60-year-old man at gun point in his bed, Ellis County Sheriff Office, along with the help of the Ennis Police Department, apprehended three males Tuesday Oct.11.
“The man was threatened by the three men that if he called law enforcement they would come back and kill him,” said Lt. James Saulter.
The ECSO received a call around 8:40 a.m. about the aggravated robbery on the 4100 block of FM 1722 but authorities believe the robbery took place around 5 a.m.
The three white males, unidentified at this time, stole guns, jewelry and various other items in the 60-year-old victims home valued at $50-$60 thousand.
Later in the afternoon, a white Toyota SUV was pulled over during a traffic stop conducted by Ennis PD where all three men were discovered.
One fled the scene and was found hiding 30 minutes later in some brush on the North East corner of Main and Baylor Street by sheriff deputies.
The three men, one believed to be in his 30s, are currently awaiting arraignment at the Wayne McCollum Detention Center.
