Pawn Shop Gunman Arrested in Waco
Suspect Facing 3 Counts of Aggravated Robbery

San Antonio, TX – Pierson Hannah was arrested today on an outstanding warrant involving 3 counts of aggravated robbery by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force (LSFTF) in Waco, TX.

Hannah, 27, was wanted by the San Antonio Police Department (SAPD) after a warrant was issued for his arrest earlier last month. Hannah allegedly robbed a local pawn shop at gunpoint and fled the scene with cash and jewelry. SAPD contacted the LSFTF to assist in locating and apprehending Hannah. Task force officers later determined that Hannah fled to Waco. Through investigative efforts and extensive surveillance, task force officers in Waco located Hannah at an apartment in the 1900 block of 9th Street.

Hannah was arrested without incident and is currently being held in custody at the McLennan County Jail awaiting extradition to San Antonio.

“Today the long arm of the law extended to Waco and captured a fugitive trying to avoid prosecution,” said U.S. Marshal Susan Pamerleau. “The combined efforts of the task force officers involved were successful in taking another violent fugitive off the streets.”
