A Harker Heights man has been arrested after stealing from a local business and threatening an employee with a knife.
Police were dispatched to a business in the 500 block of West Veterans Memorial Boulevard on November 20 in reference to a theft, which was upgraded to a robbery call.
The suspect has been identified as 23-year-old Ryan Michael Stevens. He is described as a man wearing a red sweatshirt who, after leaving the business, got into a blue Kia Soul last seen departing eastbound on Veterans Memorial Boulevard.
Officers in the area spotted the vehicle eastbound on Veterans Memorial Boulevard and stopped the vehicle after it turned onto Edwards Drive. After suspects were removed from the vehicle, the stolen property was identified as a container of milk.
The suspect also had a knife in his waistband where, when he was in the commission of the crime, had lifted his sweatshirt to take out the knife and verbally threatened the business employee. The suspect was arrested for Terroristic Threat, and all case information has been forwarded to the Bell County Attorney’s office for their review and disposition.
