Brady law enforcement nab robbery suspects

Acting on a teletype report of a stolen vehicle from Brown County, McCulloch County Sheriff Deputy Adam Hernandez attempted to stop the vehicle in question when it was observed traveling south on U.S. Hwy. 377 headed into Brady. The attempted stop around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday was to question the occupants about a robbery that occurred that night in Brownwood. When Hernandez attempted to stop the vehicle, the occupants sped off. They stopped a second time near the intersection of Blackburn and Marshall Streets and fled on foot. According to Brownwood police, the two individuals were suspected of robbing a pizza delivery person at gunpoint Tuesday night and stealing his vehicle. After fleeing on foot, one person, a juvenile, was later found hiding in a dumpster in the vicinity by Brady police officer Frank Tabor. The other individual, later identified as Isaac Suniga, 19, was apprehended at the Brady High School around 3 p.m. Wednesday. According to Brady Police Chief John Stewart, Suniga was not armed and provided no resistance to arresting officers who jailed him on criminal trespass charges. Brownwood police subsequently issued a warrant for Suniga for robbery which was executed by Brady police officer Kenneth Poe in the McCulloch County jail.
