Melissa Ann Boyer, 23


The female suspect wanted for an aggravated robbery which took place on Christmas Eve was taken into custody this evening by the Weatherford-Parker County Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the 17-year-old male victim posted a hover board for sale on the Website called “Offer Up.”

The suspect, identified as Melissa Ann Boyer, 23, of Fort Worth, responded to the advertisement via text messenger, agreeing to meet the victim at a convenience store parking lot in the 12000-block of South FM 730, in Azle, Dec. 24, 2017.

Boyer entered the parking lot around 8 p.m., driving a gold four-door passenger car, and met the victim and his brother to look over the hover board.

Boyer walked back to her car with the victim following to make the payment exchange for the hover board.

When they reached the suspect’s vehicle, the victim reported that Boyer reached into the center console and pulled out handgun, telling the victim to “act like he had the money and to walk away or she would shoot.” Boyer then threatened the victim a second time stating if he followed her, she would shoot him.

Boyer and another female inside the vehicle fled the parking lot heading north on FM 730.

Boyer was identified early in the investigation, but evaded US Marshals and the F.A.S.T members until today.

Sheriff’s investigators credit an anonymous Crime Stoppers tip which led to Boyer’s location.

US Marshals and F.A.S.T team members conducted surveillance on the suspect’s location at a residence in Haltom City. Once the suspect arrived, she entered a building adjacent to the residence. Deputies surrounded the building and apprehended Boyer without further incident.

Boyer was booked into the Parker County Jail for aggravated robbery. Her bond was set at $100,000.

“It’s a shame that the suspect found it necessary to rob these young men on Christmas Eve,” Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said. “As we had hoped, the distribution of photos from surveillance video capturing the incident is what ultimately led to her capture. We credit our F.A.S.T. Team working in cooperation with the US Marshals Task Force for the apprehension taking place without incident. We are pleased that someone had the courage to come forward and report where the suspect had been hiding.”

Anyone with information about any crime is encouraged to contact the Parker County Crime Stoppers hotline at (817) 599-5555. You may remain anonymous when calling Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of suspects involved in crimes.
