3 arrested, charged after CVS robbery, chase in north Harris County
HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Three men have been arrested after leading deputies on a chase following a robbery at a CVS store in north Harris County on Monday.
According to the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office, three men, two armed with handguns, entered the pharmacy in the 22500 block of Aldine Westfield and demanded money from the employees.
The men snatched a cash register, a wallet and a cell phone from the business, then fled in a vehicle that had been reported stolen in a carjacking in the area of FM 1960 and Imperial Valley days earlier.
Shortly after receiving descriptions of the suspects and the getaway vehicle, deputies spotted them at Aldine Westfield and Treaschwig. The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop and lead deputies on a short pursuit. The chase ended when the getaway driver turned down the 1000 block of Redcrest Springs Court, which is a dead end street.
The suspects bailed out, carrying the stolen money and weapons with them. A perimeter was set up and all three suspects were quickly apprehended. The stolen items were also recovered in the area.
“Our investigation into this incident has resulted in the arrest of George Duncan, Darius Jones and Justin Doucet. All have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and booked into the Harris County Jail. The bond on each has been set at $30,000 out of the 176th District Court,” Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said.
Price is 24 years old, Jones is 20 and Doucet is 19.
