Two more suspects are in custody relating to an aggravated robbery case from October.
The North Texas Auto Theft Task Force arrested Anthony Stewart, 34, of Dallas on Feb. 15, with Waxahachie police taking Ladaryl Dwayne Kelly, 31, of Dallas into custody Feb. 26 at the task force’s Dallas office.
Both men have been charged with aggravated robbery, Waxahachie investigator Sgt. Todd Woodruff said.
The two arrests, along with the arrest of Vincent Edward Tasby, 41, of Lancaster on Feb. 8, are the result of a joint investigation by the Waxahachie Police Department and the Dallas Police Department’s Commercial Auto Theft Unit, Woodruff said.
Bond was previously set at $40,000 for Tasby; bond information for Stewart and Kelly was not immediately available.
The armed robbery occurred Oct. 22, with police initially responding to a call from a security guard at a local Celadon truck terminal.
“A security guard employed there told officers he was approached by two males armed with handguns while on-duty at the guard shack,” Woodruff said in an interview at the time. “The suspects tied the guard up. Two other suspects then entered the trucking yard and absconded with a semi-truck and trailer loaded with cigarettes.
“After the suspects fled, the guard was able to untie himself and summon help,” Woodruff said, noting Dallas police officers later located the truck and trailer abandoned on Camp Wisdom Road with its contents still inside.
A GPS tracking device embedded in the tractor-trailer led police to the recovery, Woodruff said.
