WMW viewer’s ID; cops arrest accused Walmart robbers who hurt pregnant woman
FUGITIVES CAPTURED September 25, 2013 —
Pierce County Sheriff’s deputies arrested suspects Jeremy Crahan and Ray Williams Wednesday afternoon at a mobile home park on 217th St. Ct. E. in Spanaway. Crahan and Williams were identified through numerous tips that were called into Crime Stoppers after images of the strong arm robbery and assault were aired on Q13 FOX and WMW. Tips came in from our viewers and TNT readers.
Crahan is believed to be the heavy set male shown in the video; Williams is believed to be the shorter male with long hair.
When he was contacted by deputies he was wearing the same baseball hat seen in the video, and told deputies he had planned on turning himself in.
Williams was found hiding behind a door in Crahan’s manufactured home. Williams admitted to being with Crahan at the Walmart, that Crahan had brought the receipt and Crahan had told him they were going “to get some easy money”. Williams said that when they were confronted by store security, Crahan refused to go to jail and Williams was scared; Williams said he pushed the pregnant woman but it was not intentional.
WANTED IN PIERCE COUNTY September 20, 2013 –
The push is on by Pierce County detectives to identify these two strong armed robbers who injured a woman pregnant with twins.
Security at the Walmart in Spanaway spotted them right away as they walked around the store grabbing items that were on their shopping list. The problem is, that shopping list was really a receipt from a previous purchase. They tried to return the stolen items for cash. When security confronted them, both of the suspects bolted out the door, shoving and injuring multiple customers.
“They knocked over an older lady who hurt her neck and had to go to the hospital and a lady who was pregnant with twins who was taken from the scene by ambulance,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “They had no regard for their safety, their well being. they had a getaway driver and they fled leaving these people knocked down so these are people who have no conscience who are going to go out and steal items even if it means hurting people.”
They should be easy for someone to identify:
The heavier guy is in his 40’s, 5’10”, and was wearing a t-shirt with a basketball on the front of it.
His partner in crime is shorter, about 5’5″, with a medium build and glasses. He had long brown hair and was wearing a Motley Crew t-shirt with a pentagram and no sleeves.
