Dollar General Robbery Suspect Arrested

Fugitive Facing Aggravated Robbery Charges

San Antonio, TX – Robert Sisco, 47, was arrested early this morning by members of the United States Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in San Antonio, TX. An arrest warrant was issued pursuant to an investigation by the New Braunfels Police Department (NBPD), where it is alleged that Sisco committed aggravated robbery.

On May 1, 2015, LSFTF officers initiated an investigation in locating and apprehending Sisco. Early this morning, through collaborative investigative efforts, members of the LSFTF, with critical assistance from the Comal County Metro Narcotics Task Force (CCMNTF) determined that Sisco was hiding out in a motel room in the 11000 block of Interstate 35 North, on the northeast side of San Antonio. While conducting surveillance, task force officers observed Sisco drive a vehicle into the motel parking lot. Task force officers approached the vehicle, identified themselves, removed Sisco from the vehicle, and took him into custody without incident. Subsequent to the arrest, Sisco was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia, along with a hand gun, U.S. currency, and cartons of cigarettes that could potentially be linked to the robbery.

On April 29, 2015, Sisco allegedly robbed a Dollar General Store in the 1800 block of South Walnut Avenue in New Braufels, TX. Reports stated that Sisco entered the store, brandished a hand gun at employees, and demanded money from the registers. Sisco then ran out of the store with an unknown amount of cash, multiple cartons of cigarettes, and various other items. After an investigation by NBPD detectives, a warrant was issued for Sisco’s arrest the next day.

Sisco is currently being held in custody at the Comal County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas, states, “Without a doubt, diligent investigative work always pays off and that was displayed throughout this entire case. Every officer played a significant role in not only ensuring Sisco’s arrest, but also preventing another crime from taking place.”
