Texas C-Store Robber Nabbed

SUGAR LAND, Texas--A man arrested earlier this week after a robbery at a Houston, Texas-area convenience store confessed to robbing at least two dozen gas stations and convenience stores in Harris and Fort Bend counties in three months, police told the Houston Chronicle .

Nam Van Nguyen, 40, of Sugar Land, Texas, remained in the Fort Bend County Jail on Wednesday, charged with one count of aggravated robbery and one count of evading arrest. His bail was set at $415,000, according to the report.

Sugar Land police arrested Nguyen on Monday afternoon shortly after he was accused of robbing a Shell convenience store. A security officer noticed Nguyen's car and called police, according to the report.

A Sugar Land police officer spotted the vehicle at Texas 6 and U.S. 59 and after a short chase, Nguyen was arrested, the Houston Chronicle .

Pat Whitty, a Sugar Land police spokeswoman, told the Houston Chronicle that Nguyen matches the description of a man accused of robbing the Shell gas station/convenience store on Nov. 13 and the Chevron gas station/convenience store on Nov. 15.

In each case the suspect would enter the store and display a gun, Whitty said in the report. At first he would raise his shirt to show the weapon and in later robberies pointed the gun at the convenience store clerks, she said in the report. No clerks were harmed.
