A second suspect in an April armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver is now behind bars.

Joe Nathan Goss III, 17, was in Bell County Jail on Friday after being arraigned on a charge of aggravated robbery stemming from an alleged robbery April 28 in the 5400 block of Shawn Drive.

Goss is the second suspect to be apprehended in the case. Police also charged William Lamar Hines, 31, with aggravated robbery.

Hines also is in Bell County Jail.

According to an arrest affidavit, Goss participated in the robbery by placing a delivery order to Pizza Hut. When the driver arrived, Goss answered the door. Hines then came from behind and struck the delivery driver in the back of the head with a piece of wood, the affidavit stated. The driver threw food at the men and ran away.

Police later traced a call for the order to a phone associated with Hines. Though the driver was unable to identify Hines as a suspect, Hines admitted to attempting to rob the delivery driver, police said. Goss also admitted to police that he placed the call and knew Hines’ intention was to rob the delivery driver, the affidavit stated.

Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Goss on Friday and set his bail at $100,000.
