Lawrence police have arrested a second person suspected of being involved in an attempted robbery of a Lawrence man early Saturday morning in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street.

According to Douglas County Jail records, an 18-year-old Lawrence man was taken into custody Monday afternoon on aggravated robbery, conspiracy and obstruction charges. Clinton Vince Dubray was arrested in the 2300 block of Louisiana Street.

Dubray is the second person to be arrested in connection with the incident. Prosecutors Monday charged Franklin J. Spottedtail, 20, of Lawrence with attempted aggravated robbery, conspiracy and obstruction after he was arrested early Saturday in the 1100 block of Ohio Street.

A 43-year-old Lawrence man reported at 3 a.m. Saturday someone tried to rob him in the 1100 block of Tennessee Street. According to court and police records, Spottedtail is accused of chasing and grabbing the arms of the man during the robbery attempt, and Dubray is accused of pointing a handgun at him. The robbery attempt failed.

A judge Wednesday set Dubray’s bond at $40,000 cash or surety.

That's a shame. I believe Spottedtail attended Lawrence High School. What a terrible path to take, stupid choices make lifelong hardships.

Note to prosecutors and judges: This conduct warrants prison, for a long time. Do your jobs.

Well, Mac society believes there is a difference between theft committed with acts of violence/at the point of a gun and thefts committed non-violently.

The primary offenders in the "ticket scam" haven't even been sentenced yet. The other two were charged with misprision (a felony) for merely failing to inform the authorities what the rest of the "scammers" were up to. They were also ordered to repay more than $200,000. Can't speak for you but that's hardly a "slap" from my perspective...
