Not so meek

I suspect Mr. Meek will have his probation revoked on his old cases and his new cases will be pen time as well.

Robbery suspect had long criminal record


The 21-year-old man who police allege attempted to rob both a local pizza chain and clothing store Monday had a steady string of arrests from 2006, court records show.

Police arrested Anthony Wayne Meek Monday after he was reported to have brandished what looked like a gun to try to rob both the Domino’s Pizza at 316 South Business Interstate 35 and the Kids Kloset Family Exchange at 644 South Seguin Avenue.

Meek was put on probation June 8, 2006 after pleading guilty to six counts of burglary of a habitation in the 22nd District Court of Don B. Morgan, according to court records.

He was arrested just two months later on Aug. 7, 2006 for theft and nearly a year after that on May 2, 2007 for six counts of theft.

Both of Monday’s robberies were unsuccessful, as no money or items were actually stolen, police said.

A call came in to New Braunfels police from Domino’s about that time saying a man attempted to rob the pizza chain and fled on foot. A man matching a similar description had reportedly tried to use “a gun hidden under a cloth” to rob Kids Kloset.

Meek ran through lawns and hopped fences, but police caught up with him near the intersection of Jahn Street and Castell Avenue, where he was arrested and booked into Comal County Jail. No bond was set by Tuesday afternoon.
