A Burnet man was arrested Thursday, Aug. 21, by Marble Falls Police after an alleged 24-hour crime spree across two counties.

Murl Shane Lamb, 40, faces Llano County charges of aggravated robbery, Marble Falls charges of robbery and Burnet County charges of parole violation.

Marble Falls Capt. Glenn Hanson said officers first came into contact with Lamb last week when he was found unconscious with a crow bar in his hand outside of Sana Vida on RR 1431 at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, Aug. 20.

“He had knocked a window in and done some damage,” Hanson said. “He went to the hospital complaining of chest pain.”

Later, police connected him with damages found on two other buildings in town that had taken place over night.
