Deputies arrest suspect for Armed Robbery/Threatening Acts of Violence
On 05/29/2020 at approximately 0155 hours Wagoner County Lieutenant B. Rose, Deputy K. Phillips, and K-9 Deputy D. Watkins responded to the E Z Mart, located at 3108 S 31st in Broken Arrow, in reference to an Armed Robbery. An unidentified male walked into EZ Mart holding a black pistol, pointed the gun at the clerks face, and demanded all the money in the register.
The Clerk gave the unidentified male all of the money in register and the unidentified male ran outside and traveled to the Westbound on foot. An individual that was pumping gas outside the store was also threatened by the suspect. Deputy Watkins deployed his K-9 partner Bane and searched the area. Bane tracked the suspect's scent until they reached a point where they believed the suspect had entered a vehicle and fled the area.
Upon deputies providing a description of the male subject to Broken Arrow Police Department they informed deputies that they located a male subject, identified as Conrad E. Nedd, approximately a mile away from EZ Mart and they had him detained. Broken Arrow Police informed me that Conrad had a large sum of money on his person and that it was the same amount that was taken from EZ Mart during the robbery.
Conrad E. Nedd was taken into custody by Broken Arrow Police Department for Assaulting a Police Officer, Destruction of Government Property, among several other Felony charges that occurred during Conrad being detained. Broken Arrow Police also informed deputies that the suspect had admitted to being involved in Robbing the E Z Mart while in their custody.
Conrad E Need was transported by the Broken Arrow Police Department to the Wagoner County Detention Center where he was booked on their charges. Additionally, he was charged with Robbery with a Dangerous Weapon and Threaten to perform an act of violence by Wagoner County Deputies. He is currently being held in the Wagoner County Detention Center with no bond.
Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliott stated "This is yet another shining example of how well the law enforcement agencies in Wagoner County work together. Without assistance from our partners at the Broken Arrow Police Department this violent suspect could still be out in the community threatening others. The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office will continue to work with other agencies in this county to ensure the utmost safety of the Wagoner County citizens."
