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.
