A man was arrested Thursday night in connection with the robbery of an Oak Forest Walgreens.
According to Houston Police Department spokesperson Victor Senties, 57-year-old Kenneth Anthony Miller is being held on a pending charge of aggravated robbery.
Senties said a store security guard told officers that a man entered the Walgreens at 1215 W. 43rd St. shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday, initially asking for cigarettes. When the store employee turned back around, Senties said the suspect demanded all the money in the register and acted as though he had a weapon. Senties said the suspect then fled the scene on foot, money in hand.
Witnesses told responding officers they saw a man matching the suspect’s description enter the Domino’s Pizza at 4230 Ella Blvd. a short time later. Senties said officers confronted Miller while he was sitting at an inside table, then used a stun gun on him before making the arrest.
Senties said officers found a large, undisclosed amount of cash on Miller and no weapon.
According to HPD, Miller then showed signs of beginning to lose consciousness and was shaking as though he was having a seizure after being placed in the squad car. Senties said Houston Fire Department paramedics transported Miller to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital, where he was determined to be healthy, before released him back into police custody.
