LITTLE ROCK AR – Rockwall police have announced that local store robbery suspect, Paul Edward Roberts, was arrested without incident Aug. 1 at 10:30 pm at a Little Rock hotel by local law enforcement officials.
RPD had warned local businesses and citizens last week to be on the lookout for him after he posed as a fire extinguisher technician, was granted access to private areas and stole the wallets of several employees at two businesses.
He also robbed a business at gunpoint in the Target Center and attempted to rob another in the Hobby Lobby shopping center May 22.
He was considered “a prolific threat’ by police and was wanted in numerous cities and counties for alleged crimes.
