A Wichita Falls man pled guilty to robbing three acquaintances with a gun Friday in the 30th District Court and was sentenced to penitentiary time in the Texas prison system, according to an article in the Wichita Falls Times Record News Saturday, Feb. 15. Beau Ryan Arceneaux, 24, will have a change of address to the penitentiary for 10 years on each of three counts of robbery, which will be served concurrently.
Members of the Wichita Falls Police Department responded to a residence on Featherston Avenue during the early morning hours of April 26 where they were met by three people. All three said they were victims of being held up by Arcenaux.
They all told officers they knew the defendant and were able to pick him out of a photo lineup shown them by the Wichita Falls Police Department. All three explained to officers they were in the house in the 2900 block of Featherston when Arcenaux brandished a gun after entering the residence.
After threatening to shoot them, Arcenaux decided his presence was no longer welcome at the gathering and he departed after stealing their property.
Arcenaux's resume' indicates he has prior experience in this area of endeavors as he was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Rockwall, Tex. He was awarded two years probation to a reduced offense of deadly conduct in Rockwall for that incident after being arrested on July 3, 2011.
The Texas Department of Paroles and Pardons will decide how much of that time he actually serves before he will be paroled.
Manuel Borrego is chief of police of the Wichita Falls Police Dept.
