MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

Roderick Walker, a sixth suspect in the Jan. 18 smash and grab inside Reeds Jewelers at Wolfchase Galleria, was arrested Tuesday evening in Houston by a U.S. Marshals task force.

Investigators with the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force had been looking for Walker, the alleged sixth robber and he was traced to the Houston area.

The U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force located Walker in an apartment complex in the 13000 block of Hillcroft in southwest Houston. Due to a lack of compliance, entry was forced into the apartment where Walker was hiding and a police dog was used in his apprehension.

Marshals took Walker to the Harris County jail in Houston, where he will await extradition back to Memphis to face charges of aggravated robbery, theft, and vandalism. He is being held on a $1 million bond.

Also Tuesday, Chadwick Bailey, a fifth suspect in the heist, was extradited to Memphis from Houston. He also faces robbery, theft and vandalism charges

Cellphone video obtained by FOX13 News Jan. 18 showed the chaos in Wolfchase Galleria three weeks ago and men dressed in black running out of the mall. Six men smashed the cases in Reeds Jewelers, grabbed $537,000 worth of Rolex watches and took off.
