TYLER - An East Texas man wanted in connection with multiple robberies has surrendered.
Tyler police say 38-year-old Aaron Lamon Muse gave up peacefully at a car wash in the 1000 block of West Bow Street Wednesday morning.
Authorities say Muse was the center of weeklong manhunt involving U.S. Marshals and various East Texas police agencies.
Muse was allegedly involved in a handful of robberies, stretching from Henderson to Wood Counties.
He was on parole for aggravated robbery in the 1980s and reportedly told friends he would not return to prison.
According to Tyler Police Public Information Officer Don Martin, Crime Stoppers received information Muse was ready to surrender to police.
"Muse is wanted for aggravated robbery that occurred in Lindale, evading police in Tyler and is considered a suspect in several others cases in surrounding cities," Martin said in a press release.
