Criminal case proceedings
- An 18-year-old Lawrence man has waived his preliminary hearing and pleaded not guilty to three counts of aggravated burglary and three counts of misdemeanor theft. Larry L. Davis, 1306 E. 21st Ter., entered the pleas during a court hearing Monday. His jury trial is scheduled Jan. 4. The charges allege that between between July 20 and Oct. 1 Davis broke into occupied residences in the 700 block of West 25th and the 2400 block of Alabama and stole a bicycle, a camera, two compact disc players and compact discs.
- Steven A. Reese Jr., 18, 1900 W. 31st, has waived a preliminary hearing on a felony charge of auto burglary. Reese is to be arraigned Jan. 3 on the auto burglary charge and misdemeanor charges of theft and criminal damage to property. The charges stem from the alleged burglary of a 1967 Mustang on March 25.
- Two Lawrence teen-agers were returned to detention Tuesday to await a Dec. 16 hearing in connection with charges alleging they robbed customers at two automatic teller machines last weekend. The youths, ages 15 and 16, were detained Sunday afternoon in Ottawa less than a half hour after a Lawrence man reported being robbed at gunpoint after making a withdrawal from an ATM at Capitol Federal Savings and Loan Assn., 1025 Iowa. The second aggravated robbery charge alleges they robbed a 21-year-old Lawrence woman Saturday night at gunpoint as she completed a transaction at the Capitol Federal ATM at 11th and Vermont streets. At the Dec. 16 hearing, a date will be set to resolve the charges.
