Fourth robbery suspect in custody in Splendora

Dedrick Flanagan is accused of participating in robberies in Montgomery County.

On Wednesday evening, just a couple of hours after informing the public of the arrests of three teenagers for two robberies of the Subway restaurant in Splendora, police arrested a fourth suspect, 19-year-old Dedrick Flanagan.

According to Lt. James “Troy” Teller, spokesperson for Splendora Police Department, Flanagan reportedly has admitted his involvement in both robberies as well as a robbery of an IHOP in Porter and a vehicle pursuit with Montgomery County Pct. 4 deputy constables.

Flanagan was booked in at the Montgomery County Jail. No information on bond is available at this time.

“One remaining suspect has been identified and warrants are currently being filed,” Teller said.

The three teenagers arrested earlier in the day Wednesday are between the ages of 13-15, so their names will not be released to the media. They are being held in the Montgomery County Juvenile Center.

“It was learned all the suspects have been engaging in criminal activity from the city of Cleveland all the way to Pearland.  All the vehicles used in these criminal activities were stolen, have since been recovered and [are] being processed for evidence,” Teller said. “The same juveniles are facing additional charges from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Cleveland Police Department, Humble Police Department and Harris County Sheriff’s Office.”
