By K’Leigh Bedingfield –
The three people arrested for a series of recent aggravated robberies remain in the Erath County jail on bonds ranging from $100,000 to $400,000.
Kendall Woods, 21; Davion Thompson, 19; and Tarleton student Brittany Pinson, 19 were taken into custody on Mar. 22-23 in connections with robberies of four businesses in Stephenville, Texas
The robberies began on March 17 at Lilly’s Food Store located next to Tarleton’s University Welcome Center and continued on Monday, March 18 at Advance America Cash Advance and Taylor’s, both located on Washington St. The suspects struck again one more time on Mar. 20 at Dollar General right before the store closed.
Ironically, one of the suspects was taken into custody while getting gas for a black Mustang at one of the gas stations robbed on Saturday.
Woods was taken into custody on Friday, March 22, and Thompson and Pinson were arrested in the early hours of March 23.
According to the Stephenville Police Department’s Facebook page, police do not expect to make additional arrests in the case
A Stephenville police news release stated, “This was a lengthy investigation and the success of the investigation would not have been possible without Crime Stoppers and the cooperative effort between Stephenville Police Department, Tarleton State University Police Department, Texas Ranger Danny Briley and The Erath County District Attorney’s Office.”
Questions have surfaced about who the three suspects are.
According to her Facebook page, Pinson is a biomedical science major at Tarleton State University and graduated from Kaufman High School in 2011.
Also according to Woods and Thompson’s Facebook pages, both lived in Dallas, and the two suspects could possibly be brothers. According to Kaufman High School’s directory information, the two men lived in the same household while in high school. Pictures on Facebook show Woods to be the father of a young daughter who Thompson refers to as his niece.
