TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Court records show that five new armed robbery charges have been filed against the man accused in a deadly home invasion on Ox Bow Circle, and those arrest documents provide detailed information about how deputies were able to catch him.

Yuri Harris is facing robbery and murder charges in a home invasion on Ox Bow Circle from August 28. A 25-year-old man was killed and court papers say someone else was punched, kicked and hit with a gun.

Harris is now facing additional charges for robbing three gas stations—two of them twice—between July 10 and August 23.

Court documents filed in the new robbery cases show the victims of the home invasion fought with Harris and were able to rip off his shirt, revealing his tattoos.

Harris dropped his gun at the scene of the home invasion and FDLE was able to get a DNA match to Harris, according to court documents.

An affidavit revealed Harris’s wife admitted to driving him to the home invasion on August 27 and to the scene of all five robberies.

When Harris was caught in Missouri, he was driving his wife’s car, court documents say.

Leon County Clerk records show the additional armed robbery charges were filed against Harris Thursday and include gunpoint hold ups at several gas stations in Tallahassee:

  • July 10 - Citgo, 5382 Crawfordville Road
  • July 21 - McKenzie Mart, 3625 Apalachee Parkway
  • August 3 - McKenzie Mart, 3625 Apalachee Parkway
  • August 13 - Shell, 2436 North Monroe Street
  • August 23 - Citgo, 5382 Crawfordville Road

Deputies say the gun recovered at the scene of the home invasion matched the description of the one used in the robberies. Detectives were able to compare surveillance videos of those robberies and pinpoint Harris’s cell phone in the area at the time.

Court records show Harris’s wife, Samantha Grantham, is now facing charges in the robberies too.
