$10,000 Casino Winner's Murderers Finally Arrested

With the arrest of Michael William Ross, 26, on Saturday morning,  all three men suspected of being involved in the murder of 55-year-old Chu Bui after his $10,000 casino win have now finally been caught.
The crime took place on September 3rd at the Hawaiian Gardens Casino in California when Ross noticed Chu Bui cashing in his winnings at the casino and then concocted a plan to rob him of the money.
Ross (pictured right) then remained inside the casino but telephoned  co-conspirators Tad Allen Carroll, 41, and Barbara Ann Hamel, 47 in order to set-up the robbery.
When Chu Bui finally left the casino along with a girlfriend and his winnings, Carroll and Hamel followed him in their gold 2001 Pontiac Grand Am before cutting his car off near South Andres Place in Santa Ana.
After he tried to run, Carroll holding a knife knocked Bui to the ground before stealing the money and fleeing the scene. Chu Bui’s girl friend remained unharmed but deeply traumatised during the incident. As Cpl. Anthony Bertagna explains:
“Carroll had the knife but never stabbed him. Carroll got in the car and Hamel ran the victim over with the vehicle as they fled the scene.”
Carroll and Hamel were arrested soon after the incident, but Ross managed to elude capture up until Saturday morning when he was arrested in Mohave Valley, Ariz., after trying to escape on foot.
Officers also arrested wanted criminal Danielle Strawn, who was with Ross at the time, and during a search marijuana and methamphetamines were later recovered at the men’s hide-out.
Following his successful apprehension by U.S. Marshals, Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said; “They were excited because this kind of closes the case for them. He is obviously a dangerous man.”
Ross, Carroll and Hamel now face special circumstances murder charges in connection with their botched robbery attempt and are due to appear in court on October 15th.
