Second suspect in downtown December robbery booked into Douglas County Jail

September 7, 2011


The second suspect in a December robbery near downtown Lawrence was brought to the Douglas County Jail Tuesday afternoon.

Raymond Cortez Morgan, 27, of Kansas City, Kan., was booked into jail on a warrant after Douglas County prosecutors charged him with aggravated robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He is charged in connection with an alleged robbery that occurred Dec. 28 when a 20-year-old Lawrence man said he was walking in the 300 block of West 12th Street when a man with a handgun got out of the vehicle, demanded his wallet and drove away.

One Kansas City, Kan., woman, Ashley C. Johnson, 21, in July pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit robbery and misdemeanor theft. Prosecutors allege she was the driver during the robbery.
