(WMC-TV) - Police in Houston, Texas made a fifth arrest in connection to a smash-and-grab robbery at a jewelry store in the Wolfchase Mall.

According to Memphis police, 34-year-old Rodrick Walker is in custody as of Tuesday night.

The armed robbery in mid-January sent shoppers scrambling on a Saturday night. Police reported no injuries, but they said the five or six men involved stole 65 Rolex watches estimated to be worth $11,000 each from Reeds Jewelers.

The men reportedly put the watches in pillow cases and ran from the business.

Authorities arrested three men—Dalton Francis, Andrew Penrice, and Chadwick Bailey—from Houston in early February. At that time, police issued warrants for Walker and 26-year-old Maurice Williams. Williams was arrested and charged with theft-related charges February 17.

Police also have a sixth person of interest, but they have not named that person or issued a warrant.
