Security camera credited after arrests in robbery

A high-quality security camera was apparently a good investment after robbers struck a northwest Houston car dealership.

Houston police said three men, identified as Terry Washington, 30, Edward Ray Lavergne, 32, and Kevin Gray, 31, on March 3 held up ANF Auto Finance, 6004 North Shepherd.

The armed robbery was captured by surveillance video.

“As a result of the clarity of the pictures, numerous calls were received indicating Kevin Gray was the male in the video with the gun,” according to a criminal complaint filed against him.

The men posed as customers before one of them, allegedly Gray, pulled out a pistol. One of the other men gathered up the belongings from the victims while the third acted as a lookout, police said.

On Monday, Houston police announced their capture. Each was charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Police accused them of stealing wallets, purses and telephones at gunpoint from workers and customers. They later fled in a Dodge Avenger, officers said.

Police said Crime Stoppers tips and further investigations resulted in the arrests. The suspected robbers are being held without bail at the Harris County Jail.
