Raven Smith was arrested and booked into the Harris County Jail on 4/5/2021, charged with Agg Robbery-Deadly Weapon.

Court documents state Smith and her accomplice, known as “Luana”, entered the EJ Beauty Supply Store. The victim, owner of the store, watched Smith shoplifting items and place them inside a bag/purse. The owner asked to see what was inside the bag but Smith refused and walked out the store. The victim tried to hold on to the purse, pulling it back and forth, but then “Luana” came and handed Smith a tire iron, which Smith used to assault the victim. Smith eventually left behind the bag, fleeing the scene in a vehicle. As Smith drove away, she attempted to run over the victim. Inside the bag was the stolen merchandise. The owner managed to get most of the stolen merchandise back. A witness was able to capture the license plate of the getaway vehicle, which eventually led detectives to the identification of Smith. Records show that Smith’s accomplice, "Luana", has not yet been identified. HPD#166236320

Smith's bond was set at $5,000 and was assigned to the 262nd Harris County District Criminal Court. Court Records show Smith was also on two other bonds for Theft during her arrest.

ARRESTED -- Serial robbery suspects arrested after committing and confessing to several aggravated robberies. Suspect was out on bond. 

Thank you to our Officers from the South Gessner Crime Suppression Team and our partners at DPS for an excellent, extensive investigation that led to the capture of two violent robbery suspects. 

On June 11th, 2020 Sierra broke into an apartment located near 7200 Bellerive Dr. not knowing that someone was inside. 12 year old victim was home alone while his mom briefly left the apartment. The victim heard who he thought was his mother in the kitchen. He walked to the kitchen and was quickly approached by the suspects who had knifes. Suspect Sierra had a knife and told the 12 year old to “relax” while they finished taking personal belongings, keys, and money. The suspects then fled. Sierra would later be arrested when she returned the next day and attempted to steal the victim’s father vehicle. 

Research shows Sierra would later be released on Bond and as part of her bond conditions, she was required to wear an ankle monitor. Sierra would go on to later commit three additional aggravated robberies while out on bond on January 3rd, 5th, and 6th, 2021. On January 25th, South Gessner CST Officers, after an extensive investigation, located and detained Sierra along with Del Angel near 11000 Albury at a gas station. CST Officers noted that Sierra was not wearing her court ordered ankle monitor. Sierra and Del Angel would later be interviewed, where they confessed to several robberies. Sierra also demonstrated to officers how she could slip on and off her ankle monitor without damaging it. 

Sierra was charged with three counts of aggravated robbery. Del Angel was charged with two counts of aggravated robbery, one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of unlawful carrying of a weapon. Del Angel was the shooter in an Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon incident where he shot at a complainant (store clerk) after a dispute about him shoplifting. Great collaborative work by the South Gessner Crime Suppression Team and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
