Charges are starting to add up for three men, accused in a series of Lubbock bank robberies. Earlier this month, James Horton, David Johnson and James Peacock were indicted in federal court. Tuesday, a Lubbock Grand Jury indicted all three with aggravated robbery related to the October 2005 robbery at Plains Bell Federal Credit Union. Horton is also charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in connection with a car found at the scene.
The Grand Jury also indicted Jaime Hernandez with one count of robbery. Officers say he used a note written on a one-dollar bill to try and rob the Subway at 4th and Frankford last week.
An aggravated assault charge has now been upgraded to murder for Alvin Morriel. The Grand Jury indicted him for the death of Carl Nash. Nash died February 3rd, nearly a month after police say Morriel shot him during a shooting spree that injured four people.
Stephen Taff was indicted for intoxication assault and aggravated assault of a public servant. Police gave Taff a field sobriety test the night he's accused of crashing into officer Chris Hensley who had pulled another car over for a separate traffic stop. Hensley was treated for injuries to his back and neck.
