Video from a security camera led deputies to seek a theft warrant.
WACO (October 23, 2013) A man already jailed on charges stemming from the robbery of a local restaurant was named in a theft complaint Wednesday after investigators reviewed surveillance video of a parking lot where a stolen car was abandoned next to the parole officer where he was arrested for the holdup earlier this month.
Johnny Roland Glover, 50, was arrested on Oct. 10 at the Waco District Parole Office just off State Highway 6 near Speegleville Road on a warrant stemming from a robbery on Sept. 18 at the Jalisco Restaurant at 1000 South New Road.
Last Friday Brian Johnson, who owns the parking lot where the stolen Toyota Camry was abandoned, called the sheriff’s office and reported that the car had been parked in the lot since Oct. 10.
Deputies determined the car had been stolen in Dallas and that its license plates had been taken from a Jaguar.
After reviewing surveillance video, deputies obtained an arrest warrant Wednesday charging Glover with theft over $1,500 and under $20,000, Sheriff’s Detective Michael Graham said.
Glover remained in the McLennan County Jail Wednesday evening.
Beverly Hills police, assisted by Waco officers also used surveillance video to obtain a warrant for Glover’s arrest in the Sept. 18 restaurant robbery.
In the surveillance video, the robber appeared to have a gun under his shirt, but wasn’t clear whether he was actually armed.
He escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash.
No one was hurt.
