Two robberies occurred on Sept. 10 and two robberies occurred on Sept. 11 in Greensboro, North Carolina. A 30-year-old North Carolina man was arrested and charged with all four crimes, but later police identified a 20-year-old man, who they arrested on Sept. 21. The 20-year-old was charged with theft crime in connection with the robberies that occurred on Sept. 11 only.
However, on Sept. 27, the man was charged in the robberies that occurred on Sept. 10 as well. Police allege that the young man attacked someone at gunpoint and stole cash and a cell phone on Sept. 10. They also say he stole a United States passport and also a cell phone on the same day from another victim.
The man was taken to the Guilford County jailhouse. His bond has been set at $85,000. The other man has his bond set at $100,000. Although a gun was allegedly utilized in carrying out these crimes, the gun was not fired. In fact, it is not even known if the gun was loaded at the time of the theft.
Theft crime accusations are extremely serious. If a North Carolina resident is convicted of such criminal activity, he or she may be required to spend many years in jail. For this reason, the criminal defense of theft crime accusations must be done in a careful way that analyzes each and every element of the facts. An in-depth understanding of the law, potential punishments, and the requirements for a conviction is also necessary to ensure that an individual receives the best possible criminal defense that is available.
