Three Arrested in Armed Robbery Investigation



As a result of an investigation by members of the Wareham Police Department Detective and Patrol Divisions, three individuals have been arrested on outstanding warrants pertaining to an Armed Robbery incident reported to have occurred at the end of Station St. in Wareham on Thursday, April 5, 2012. On that date, officers responded to the report of a male walking in the area, bleeding from the head. Officers located the male, who reported that he had met with a female and two males at that location, at which time he was assaulted with an object and robbed of his cash by the two males. The victim, a 20 year old male Plymouth resident, reported to officers that he had met the male and female earlier in the day, adding that the second male was unknown to him. The victim was transported to Tobey Hospital by Wareham EMS, where he was treated and released regarding being struck on the head.

Based on information received at the scene, officers applied for an arrest warrant for the known male involved in the armed robbery incident, identified as Robert Mahan, age 21, of #6 Windy Hill Drive in West Wareham. Mr. Mahan was arrested without incident during a motor vehicle stop on the night of Thursday, April 12th. Investigation of the original incident led to further arrests regarding this incident, when 18 year old Kaycee Hayes of #16 Windy Hill Drive West Wareham, and 21 year old Kyle Smith of #5 Tremont Center Rd. West Wareham, were arrested at their homes today on warrants obtained pertaining to their involvement in the armed robbery incident on April 5th.

During the arrest of Kyle Smith at #5 Tremont Center Rd., officers discovered that he was in possession of an alligator, approximately 2 feet in length, which was kept in an aquarium. Mr. Smith was charged with the illegal misdemeanor possession of the alligator, which was secured by the Wareham Police Dept. Animal Control Officer and confiscated by the Environmental Police Department.

Robert Mahan, Kaycee Hayes, and Kyle Smith have been charged with Armed Robbery and will be arraigned at the Wareham 4th District Court.
