HOUSTON – Three men are charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon after an incident earlier this week in Harris County, investigators said.
About 2:30 p.m. Monday, Jaelon Harris and Christian Dorsey, who are both 18 years old, entered the Cash Store in the 12200 block of Jones Road, in the northwest part of the county, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
Harris had a pistol and Dorsey walked into the store with a plastic bag, intended to collect the money. The pair ordered the workers to hand over cash from the store’s drawers and safe, deputies said.
A third man, Jawuan Williams, was parked in front of the business in a getaway car, according to officials.
Due to a power outage in the area, the store manager was unable to open the safe, so Harris and Dorsey took off, deputies said.
Meanwhile, authorities got a description of the getaway car -- a green Honda Accord with a temporary license plate -- and broadcast it to deputies and other law enforcement officials in the area. Investigators also shared information regarding what the men were wearing.
About 3:20 p.m., deputies with the Harris County Constables Precinct 4 spotted the car near State Highway 249 and Cypresswood. The vehicle and the men inside matched the descriptions provided, so the deputies stopped the car.
Investigators who were looking into the Cash Store robbery brought witnesses to the scene, who identified Harris and Dorsey as the two men who entered the business, deputies said. Williams was also recognized as the getaway driver.
All three were arrested.
