“The Buck Stops Here” For Two Serial Robbers

October 8, 2007 - Two female suspects have been arrested and charged for numerous aggravated robberies that occurred at various businesses throughout north and northwest Houston. Dollar and 99-cent stores were the primary targets for these suspects.

The suspects, Aracely Limon-Ruiz (w/f, DOB: 5-20-81) and Linda Nicole King (w/f, DOB: 4-9-89), are charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in the 337th State District Court. The suspects were arrested on Monday (October 1) at 1550 Blalock without further incident.

Officers with the Northwest Patrol’s Divisional Tactical Unit obtained information regarding the two suspects committing numerous robberies and followed-up on the initial reports. They learned during one of the robberies a witness was able to follow the suspects to their vehicle and took a photograph of the license plate. The vehicle was found to have warrants for Limon-Ruiz. After an extensive investigation, the Northwest Tactical officers learned the suspect’s address and the type of vehicle she drove. The officers conducted surveillance at 1550 Blalock where both suspects were arrested.

A follow-up investigation completed by investigators in the Robbery Division revealed Limon-Ruiz was positively identified in 11 robberies and King was positively identified in two cases.

This is another example of the extensive and detailed investigations our officers conduct on a daily basis and because of their commitment to serve and protect the community, two more dangerous suspects are off our streets.
