According to the Nixon Police Department, Jarred Woodward, 37, of Pawnee has been arrested in connection with an Aug. 1 armed robbery at Reliable Finance in Nixon.

A security video of the incident released by the department resulted in a tip to the Gonzales County Crime Stoppers. This led to Woodward’s arrest near his residence in Karnes County. He was charged with aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.

According to the Nixon Police Department, Woodward was named as a person of interest in at least three other recent armed robberies in surrounding counties, including home invasion.

Be sure to pick up a copy of the Wilson County News next week to hear a first-person account from an eyewitness to the robbery.
