WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Three suspects in recent robberies are in custody, with two taken into custody early Wednesday afternoon after a car and foot chase, and another already in jail from a chase last week, with a robbery charge filed on him in jail.
The two arrests on August 11, 2021, came after a car matching one used in one of the robberies sped off from police, on Kemp, then sped through numerous side streets trying to elude pursuing officers.
At some point during the chase, two male suspects got out and fled on foot.
The red Kia finally stopped at 8th and Denver, but the driver was a female, Sara Chandler, who is charged with evading.
A few minutes later officers spotted a possible white male suspect walking in the area and pursued him on foot. Javier Castro was taken into custody at 8th and Brook.
Police at last report were still looking for a gun that could have been thrown from the car.
Police said Castro was wanted for the armed robbery of Sam’s Dollar Saver with two black male suspects on August 9. The following day police released a surveillance photo of a man holding a gun on a clerk.
Also arrested after the Kia chase ended was Remarcus Donnell. He had a warrant for a home invasion armed robbery on August 4 on Bell street. He joins another suspect in that robbery already in jail.
Lonnie Clark was arrested the day after the Bell robbery, after a foot chase, after a report of a man pointing a gun at someone at the La Quinta hotel on Central Freeway.
The Bell Street home invasion victims said two black males armed with guns and a white male forced their way in, hit one victim in the head with a gun and took a wallet and phones.
Police said a Crime Stoppers tip enabled them to put together a list and photo lineup of suspects and that one of the victims positively identified Lonnie Clark as the one who hit him in the head.
