DPD arrests 2 for driveway robberies

Posted: Updated:

Police have two people in custody in connection with several driveway robberies in Dallas.

Charles Hunt, 51 and Santana Andrews, 27, were arrested for aggravated robbery Thursday night.

Patrol officers were on the lookout for a silver SUV and pulled them over near North Hampton Road and West Davis Street.

The pair and their vehicle fit the descriptions police had in a series of driveway robberies throughout the city, police said.

The most recent robbery happened Wednesday night in the 3000 block of Kiesthill Drive, where a homeowner was robbed in his driveway at gunpoint. That scene is about four miles away from where the suspects were arrested.

Officers found a stolen wallet from that robbery and other evidence in the vehicle that links Hunt and Andrews to the crimes, police said.

Police said the suspects admitted to the Wednesday night robbery and another in Dallas. They also admitted to a similar crime in another city.

Investigators are now working to connect them to at least 24 robberies in Dallas. They hope to find out if they were working with anyone.

Police said it's possible there's more than one group of suspects committing the robberies, which have been occurring since January.

In most cases the suspects wore some kind of mask. For the most part the suspects are male, but three of the robberies included a female. The description of the male suspects has not been consistent.

Police are offering information to crime watch groups in affected areas to spread information.

Both Crime Stoppers and Oak Farms Dairy are each offering up to $5,000 rewards for information that leads to an arrest and indictment. People can call Crime Stoppers at 214-373-TIPS.
