Killeen Police Catch Taxi Robber

Killeen Police made short work of a man who robbed a cab driver Friday. Police responding to the robbery apprehended the robber after a short chase.
Police arrested Crawford just after 1:30 p.m. Friday after a 911 caller reported that the driver of an Express Cab had been robbed at gunpoint in the area of Carrie and Conder.

Officers in the area spotted a man in the running west in the 600 block of Carrie who matched the description of the robber.

He ignored a officer’s order to stop and continued to run, police said Monday.

The officer chased him until he caught him in the next block.

Crawford is charged with aggravated robbery.

His bond was set at $300,000. Source: KWTX.com

The report also indicates that a CrimeStoppers tip linked him to several other recent robberies. CrimeStoppers pays cash for information leading to the arrest and indictment of area criminals.
