A Gates teen, previously indicted on six counts of robbery, is under arrest again.
Police tell News10NBC they arrested 17-year-old Keith Speed early this morning after officers on routine patrol spotted a suspicious looking man riding a bike through the Westerleigh Road and Gemini Circle neighborhoods. When officers tried to approach Speed, we're told he ran off and through the backyard of a home, looked into the open window of a home and asked the resident to borrow a phone because "the cops are chasing me." Speed is charged with criminal trespass for being in two backyards that are fenced in.
Earlier this year, Speed was arrested for robbing a pharmacy and several gas stations in Gates. In each incident, police say Speed pulled out a gun on cashier each time. Investigators say he used a BB gun but it is hard to tell the difference between a BB gun and a real handgun.
