$1 million bond set for PB man in Hensley home invasion robbery


A $1 million bond was set Tuesday in Pulaski County District Court for a Pine Bluff man alleged to have been involved in a home invasion robbery on June 9, according to Pulaski County Sheriff’s Lt. Chris Camerling.

Reddie Charles Stanley, 24, is accused of capital murder and aggravated robbery and was booked into the Pulaski County jail Monday after being released from a Little Rock hospital where he was treated for injuries that resulted when Stanley and two other people allegedly tried to flee the scene of the robbery and crashed the truck they were driving after hitting a tree.

Cloie Jolus, 36, died of injuries received in that crash and a third suspect, Elijah Cooley, 30, also of Pine Bluff is being held on a $3 million bond. He allegedly fled the scene of the accident and was arrested after he went to a hospital for treatment of injuries received in the crash and faces the same charges as Stanley.

Puaski County authorities said Stanley, Cooley and Jolus were fleeing the scene of the alleged robbery of a 77-year-old man who told deputies two men pepper sprayed him and took his wallet and cellphone at his home in Hensley. The alleged victim said he opened the door to a woman who said her car had broken down in the area.

The murder charges stem from Jolus’ death.
