Violent robbery, police chase leads to Troy man’s arrest
A Troy man was arrested after a violent incident on Tuesday night.
It started when Murat Gibson committed armed robbery at a home in Lansingburgh – in front of a child – say police.
Gibson took off in a U-Haul truck before first responders arrived, said police.
He then allegedly led an officer on a chase to Alternate Route 7 and the Northway. Then he tried to crash his truck and run, say police.
Police caught up and arrested him. They say he had a loaded gun in his waistband.
Gibson is also a parolee who was previously convicted of attempted murder and attempted promotion of prison contraband.
He’s facing a long list of charges – including four felonies.
