Two robbery crews busted
By LeaAnne Klentzman
Suspects have been arrested in two separate grocery store related robberies in the northern reaches of Fort Bend County.
In the first robbery, May 10, 2014, deputies responded to a grocery store robbery in the 6600 block of S Fry Road in the unincorporated area southeast of Katy. In this case, sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said a white male wearing what appeared to be a safety vest, entered the store and stole approximately $200 in merchandise. That theft became a robbery when the suspect pulled a knife and threatened an employee who approached him as he was leaving the store.
Haenel said this same suspect has also been linked to another grocery store theft on May 1, on FM 1093 east for Fulshear. The suspect in these two cases has been identified as Anthony Lee Miller, 30. According to Haenel, he has been indicted for Aggravated Robbery, and is being held in Harris County on unrelated charges.
The second grocery store related robbery, where a suspect has been identified and arrested, occurred on Monday, June 23, at the Kroger near the intersection of State Highway 6 S and Bissonnet. On that Monday evening, Aaron El-Sharif, 22, of Houston is reported to have approached an elderly man and threatened him with a gun. The victim was loading groceries into his car when El-Sharif walked up to him, displayed a handgun and then took his wallet.
Responding deputies identified the suspect, arrested him, and returned the victim’s property. El-Sharif has been charged with Aggravated Robbery and Evading Arrest/Detention. He is also being held on outstanding warrants.
Both Miller and El-Sharif remain in jail.
