On December 30, 2018 at about 2:30pm, Deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a Walgreens Pharmacy at 20824 FM 1485 in New Caney, Texas in reference to a robbery. The victim advised dispatchers that while she was sitting in her vehicle in the parking lot, the suspect approached her vehicle, and forcefully took her purse from her. The victim advised that the actor fled the scene toward US HWY59 South and described the suspect’s vehicle as dark-colored/grey 2000’s model Nissan Maxima. Soon after, awaiting Deputies observed this vehicle traveling South on US HWY59 at a high rate of speed. When deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop with the vehicle, the diver refused to stop. After a short pursuit, the vehicle struck a concrete barrier near the intersection of FM1314 and Loop 494. The driver then fled the vehicle on foot but was captured by responding Deputies shortly thereafter. The driver was identified as Robert Paul Cantrell, 48, of 289 Windham Ranch in Goodrich. During the investigation, Cantrell was found to be in possession of at least six different purses containing multiple identity documents that did not belong to him.
He is currently being held in the Montgomery County Jail on multiple charges. Since he is on parole a bond was not set.
