Bond set in alleged robbery


A $50,000 bond was set Thursday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly stole a vehicle from another man Sunday, then wrecked the vehicle while being chased by police Tuesday.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Quadarian Kimble, 20, with robbery.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said the alleged victim picked up Kimble and drove around town while the two allegedly smoked marijuana.

Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable-cause affidavit that the alleged victim told police he parked the car on the levy on Port Road and he and Kimble talked before Kimble punched him in the mouth and tried to do additional bodily harm before the victim got out of the vehicle and Kimble drove off.

Kizer said police saw the car Tuesday in the Dollarway area and chased it until Kimble wrecked and fled on foot. He was found a short time later.

Although Bridgforth set a bond, Kimble will not be able to post it because he is on parole and an absconder warrant has been issued for his arrest. A hearing will be scheduled to determine if his parole should be revoked.
