Irving police have arrested 23-year-old Gavin Marcus Shane Boston for allegedly committing aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony.
Police say Boston forcibly stole personal property from a victim while using a weapon or causing bodily harm. This elevates a robbery charge to an aggravated offense.
Boston was booked into the Irving Jail on October 23 at 4:54pm, with bond set at $25,000. He also had an outstanding warrant from Denton County for assault.
Records show Boston has previously lived in Aubrey and Carrollton. He has prior arrests for assault causing bodily injury, drug paraphernalia possession, and arson. His latest aggravated robbery charge continues a violent criminal history.
Aggravated robbery is considered a particularly dangerous offense given the use of force and weapons to take property by intimidation. First-degree charges are applied when a firearm is involved or the victim suffers significant bodily injury.
If convicted, Boston could face 5 to 99 years in prison due to the severity of the crime and his criminal background.
