Two Pine Bluff men were arrested Tuesday after they allegedly robbed two other people on the parking lot of a convenience store.’
Jamar Williams, 26, and Dominique Warren, 22, who both have felony charges pending, were picked out of a photo lineup by one of the victims, Deputy Prosecutor Bryan Achorn said during a court appearance for the men Wednesday.
Detective William Freeman said in a probable cause affidavit police were called to the Alon Convenience Store at 2401 E. Sixth Ave., at 5:15 p.m., in response to a hold-up alarm.
Store clerks told police they saw people point guns at other people in the parking lot, then get into vehicles and leave.
One of the alleged victims told officers he and a person in another car had been robbed, with that victim saying the suspects had taken $500 from him.
A description of the suspects and vehicles was broadcast and Williams was seen running into an apartment at West Sixth Avenue and Wisconsin Street. Police made contact with the residents, who reported finding a gun, clothes and scales that didn’t belong to them.
Achorn said Williams had previously been convicted of commercial burglary, theft by receiving, drug-related charges and being a felon in possession of a firearm, and has pending charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Warren had previously been convicted of residential burglary and has pending charges of residential burglary, theft of property and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney ruled that prosecutors had probable cause to charge both men with aggravated robbery and with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Bond for Williams was set at $200,000 while bond for Warren was set at $150,000.
