Date 2014/6/25 3:53:33 | Topic: Blogs and Columns


Lewisville Police reported that from April through June of this year, a lone suspect committed ten offenses in Lewisville (seven aggravated robberies of convenience store clerks and one aggravated robbery of an individual). The suspect was also suspected of committing several similar offenses in a neighboring jurisdiction. Patrol officers and detectives were working to identify and locate the suspect during that time frame.

On June 18th, an off-duty peace officer discovered a suspicious person sleeping in a vehicle at an apartment complex. Lewisville officers responded and discovered that the subject had outstanding warrants for disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia. After his arrest for the outstanding warrants, officers located items that seemed to connect the subject to the string of local robberies. Lewisville Detective Scott Kelly looked into the matter further and ultimately developed probable cause to charge the suspect with the crimes. During his interrogation, the suspect confessed to a total of 15 offenses.

Lewisville police have charged 22 year-old Charles Ray, Jr. with seven counts of aggravated robbery, one count of robbery, and one count of theft in connection with the Lewisville offenses. Ray is currently being held on a $210,000 bond. Ray is also expected to be charged in connection with the offenses from the other jurisdiction.
