Prison sentence issued in home invasion and burglary

GREENVILLE — A local man has been sentenced to prison on charges of aggravated robbery and burglary in connection with a home invasion robbery and a separate residential burglary in Hunt County during August of last year.

Zachary Ryan Day, 24, of Greenville entered guilty pleas Tuesday during a hearing in the 354th District Court. Under a plea bargain arrangement, Day was sentenced to 12 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice-Institutional Division.

As a deadly weapon was found to have been used in the robbery, Day will have to spend at least half of the sentence, or six years, in prison before being eligible to be considered for parole.

On the morning of Aug. 10, 2012 deputies were dispatched to a residence on County/Private Road 3141 southeast of Greenville in reference to a report of an aggravated robbery.

The suspects, two males and one female, were reported to have entered the residence through the garage, wearing bandannas over their faces.

One of the suspects was reported to have pointed a pistol at the head of a teenaged victim and demanded money.

The suspects stole a flat screen television, a laptop computer and keys to vehicles at the residence. The teenager was later found unharmed.

Approximately one hour later, a residence in the 400 block of FM 1564 West in Hunt County was burglarized. Investigators were able to obtain a copy of home surveillance footage, which revealed two males and one female, wearing bandannas over their faces, at the rear of the residence.

One of the suspects was alleged to have pointed a gun at a dog inside the home, but did not shoot the dog. At one point, the suspects removed their masks and investigators were able to identify them as Day, Larry Michael Gomez of Greenville and Karli Louise Brumit of Rowlett.

Gomez was arrested on the same day in Rockwall. Day was arrested late on Aug. 18, 2012 at a residence in the Town and Country Mobile Home Park. Brumit was taken into custody early on the morning of Aug. 19, 2012 at the intersection of Joe Ramsey Boulevard and Stonewall Street in Greenville after an eight hour manhunt.

Brumit pleaded guilty in October of last year and was sentenced to prison. Gomez has trials pending on the charges.
