Heights and Killeen Police Nab Robber

A man who robbed a person in Harker Heights was arrested a short time later by Killeen Police.
Police responded to the call in the 500 block of North Ann Boulevard around 10:30 a.m. Monday where the victim was able to give them a detailed description of the suspect.

The victim told officers that the robber drove into the parking lot and pulled out a gun, demanding money. The victim handed over $5 and the robber fled.

Shortly after arriving on scene, officers broadcast the suspect's description along with a partial license plate number to other law enforcement agencies in the area. Minutes later, Killeen Police Officers spotted a vehicle and suspect matching the robber's description.

The robber then tried to run from officers; he was taken into custody after a short foot chase. Source: KXXV.com

This is a great example of inter-agency communication working to catch bad guys.
