Robbery Suspect Apprehended


The Abilene Police Department’s Surveillance Apprehension and Tactics Team (SATT) arrested 21-year-old Mario Martinez Carrillo Jr. on charges of Aggravated Robbery.

 Patrol officers responded to two aggravated robberies between 6:30 and 7 a.m. on Sunday, June 27. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male who used a handgun to demand money from clerks at two separate convenience stores. The description of Carrillo and vehicle was distributed to officers. 

 Agents with SATT, Major Investigations, SWAT, and Patrol assisted in apprehending the suspect on Sunday, at a North Abilene residence located in the 900 block of San Jose without incident.

 Carrillo is being held in the Taylor County Jail on charges of First Degree Felony Aggravated Robbery, Third Degree Felony Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and two outstanding warrants. This investigation is ongoing.

 The SATT was implemented to assist in the capture of local, state, and federal fugitives in Abilene. They accomplish this by developing a tactical plan for the apprehension of suspects. The team was re-focused from the former Street Crimes Unit. It is comprised of one Sergeant and six agents. The team was operational on June 20, 2021.
