Three individuals were arrested Wednesday afternoon for Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity. Velvin Stewart Skinner, 45, Lucas Wayne Massey, 32, and Christopher Don Williams, 26, were all subjects involved in a theft at Walmart in Sulphur Springs.
Sulphur Springs Police Department Officers arrived at the location shortly after the theft occurred and were advised that the suspects fled the scene in a 2000 model Ford F-150 truck. A responding officer observed the vehicle and made a traffic stop at the corner of Mockingbird Lane and Duckworth Street just after 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Once the vehicle came to a stop, Skinner, who was the front passenger, exited the vehicle and fled on foot after being ordered to stop. Skinner was located in the 1200 block of Broadway by a SSPD Officer and was placed into custody.
All three individuals were identified by Walmart Loss Prevention as being involved in the theft. Massey and Williams were charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and were each placed on $2,500 bond. Massey has since posted bail. Skinner was charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and Evading Arrest and Detention and sits on $5,000 total bond.
