BEEVILLE — Police officers arrested a 17-year-old man early Saturday on a variety of charges, including the first-degree charge of aggravated robbery.

Detective Sgt. Art Gamez said information gathered so far is being withheld until the matter is investigated further.

The suspect, Thomas Ragsdale, was taken into custody between 2 and 3 a.m. Saturday at the International Bank of Commerce at 802 E. Houston St.

If convicted of the robbery charge, Ragsdale could face a prison sentence of 99 years to life and a $10,000 fine.

Gamez said the suspect also is being charged with evading arrest/detention, resisting arrest and criminal mischief, $500-$1,500.

Ragsdale was taken after being apprehended to the Bee County Jail, where he is currently in custody.

His bond was set at $500,000 on the robbery charge, and bonds on the other three charges totaled $8,000.

Gamez said no one was hurt in the incident that led to the arrest and the charges against the suspect.
