Texas man charged with robbery

September 5, 2008


An 18-year-old man from San Antonio was charged in Douglas County District Court with two counts of aggravated robbery Friday afternoon, District Attorney Charles Branson's office said.

The man, James Gross, was brought from Texas to the Douglas County Jail on Thursday night, where he was arrested at 9:12 p.m., the sheriff's office said.

Prosecutors accuse Gross of robbing two men with a gun and taking money and marijuana from them. The charges stem from an incident on Aug. 11 at 2400 Ala., where a 17-year-old and a 20-year-old man were robbed, a police report said.

Bond was set at $75,000 during his first appearance in court Friday.

Three other men, Richard Demby, Paul Jones and Cory Tompkins, also have been charged with two counts each of aggravated robbery in connection with the incident, a spokeswoman for Branson said.
