Harris County Sheriff’s Office investigators with the Violent Crimes unit have filed 2 counts of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon on a 20-year-old male, after robbing several victims with a shotgun.
Investigators say that John Michael Medina (10-13-98), is responsible for at least four aggravated robberies in north east Harris county. The robberies all occurred on Sunday May 20, 2018.
Medina robbed a male as he was getting out of his vehicle in the 10800 block of Airline drive.
He pointed a shotgun at the male and demanded his wallet and jewelry. The complainant was able to give a good description of Medina’s clothing and his gray colored four door sedan he was driving.
A short time later, a second complainant was robbed by Medina in the 10700 block of the North Freeway.
That male was walking to his vehicle from a local electronics store and was approached by Medina. He pointed a shotgun at him and demanded his wallet and cell phone.
The second complainant’s description of Medina’s clothing matched that of the first robbery victim.
He was able to get the license plate of the gray colored sedan that Medina fled in.
Investigators and HCSO District 2 patrol deputies went to his home in the 700 block of Corvette Ct were they found the vehicle that he used during the robberies.
Medina was found sitting in another vehicle in the driveway of the residence.
During a search of the suspects’ vehicle, several items belonging to various victims were located.
They included a wallet and a distinctive gold necklace that one of the complainants was wearing. The shotgun used was also recovered.
Investigators are interviewing other victims that Medina robbed, and will be presenting their cases to the District Attorney’s Office for additional charges.
He is currently being held in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Detention facility on a $100,000 bond.
