A Crime Stoppers tip that confirmed the identity of a person known as the “Scream Robber” led to the suspect’s surrender and arrest.

The “Scream Robber” got his nickname from the mask to hold up his victims. On Thursday, a Crime Stoppers caller provided sufficient information to have police arrest David Wayne Onnen as the prime suspect in a number of robberies.

Onnen confessed to a total of eight robberies in the Houston and Harris County area. Investigators said he has been charged in the 176th District Court in the following robberies:

– Texaco station at 4700 Navigation February 14, 2009;
– Quik Mart at 6503 Harrisburg February 14, 2009;
– Stop & Shop at 1412 SSGT. Macario Garcia Drive March 12, 2009;
– Stop & Shop at 5417 Harrisburg on March 13, 2009

Citizens, law enforcement and the media, working together through Crime Stoppers once again leads to getting another bad guy off the streets. Congratulations to all.
