Sheriff's Office nabs Three for Armed Robbery

HUNT COUNTY - Two Greenville men and a Rowlett woman, each wearing bandanas during recent burglaries, are charged with aggravated robbery after revealing their identities while unknowingly on camera.

The Hunt County Sheriff’s Office is reporting the arrest of 52-year-old Larry Michael Gomez, 24-year-old Zachary Ryan Day and 24-year-old Karli Louise Brum.

On August 10, the three were alleged to have robbed a Greenville home along CR 3141 of a laptop computer and a Ford F-150 truck, during which one of the suspects pointed a gun at the head of a teenager who lived at the home. The three abducted the boy for a brief time before releasing him unharmed.

Approximately one hour later the three entered a vacant home along FM 1564 that had hidden cameras, where they removed their bandannas. That led authorities to identify the suspects.

“Gomez was coincidentally arrested on the same day in Rockwall, in the parking lot of Target on a weapons charge and two drug charges,” a Hunt County Sheriff’s statement read. “Day was arrested late on August 18 at a residence in the Town and Country Mobile Home Park.”

While Brumit was able to initially avoid capture when Day was arrested, an eight hour manhunt led officers to locate her early Sunday morning at the intersection of Joe Ramsey Blvd. and Stonewall Street in Greenville.

All three are charged with aggravated robbery and other charges are expected to be filed in the near future.

“There were a lot of hard work and long man hours put in to locating these dangerous individuals. This was a high priority task due to the nature of these crimes. I want to commend Hunt County Constable Pct. 1 Terry Jones in assisting us in this extremely important investigation. I feel much better knowing that these individuals are off the streets of Hunt County and inside the Hunt County Detention Center,” said Sheriff Randy Meeks.
