Cash-only bond set in alleged robbery

A $50,000 cash-only bond was set Wednesday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly robbed another man in October.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Donte Oliver, 21, with aggravated robbery, theft of property, discharging a firearm from a car and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Deputy Prosecutor Cymber Gieringer said Oliver was identified as one of three men who allegedly robbed another man at gunpoint on Oct. 26.

Detective Jeremy Oswalt said in a probable-cause affidavit that the alleged victim told police he was at 3720 Miramar Drive when three men, including Oliver, approached him, pulled guns and took his wallet containing $400 before fleeing in a vehicle. The alleged victim said he tried to follow the vehicle and someone inside it fired shots at his vehicle.

According to the affidavit, the alleged victim identified Oliver as one of the men who robbed him.

Gieringer said Oliver was placed on probation on Aug. 31, 2012, after pleading guilty to residential burglary and theft of property.

In addition to setting the bond, Bridgforth ordered Oliver to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.

Oliver said he would hire his own attorney.
