Lawrence police Wednesday afternoon arrested a 47-year-old Lawrence woman on charges related to a July carjacking in west Lawrence.

According to Douglas County Jail records, a detective arrested the woman about 2 p.m. Wednesday on charges of aiding a felon and intimidation of a witness. She posted $2,500 bond and was given notice to appear in court Sept. 28. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects unless they are formally charged.

Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman, confirmed the arrest was in connection with a July 23 robbery in which three people are accused of luring a 28-year-old Lawrence man to the 2500 block of Winterbrook Drive and stealing his car.

In August, police went to Texas to arrest Deondria L. Smith, 26, of Lawrence, after prosecutors charged her with aggravated robbery and conspiracy. Police and prosecutors accuse Smith of conspiring with two men — Travis Brownlee, 33, and Charles Reed, 19 — to rob the man at gunpoint. Sarna said police are still actively looking for Brownlee and Reed, who prosecutors have charged through warrants.

Police have asked anyone with information about Brownlee or Reed to call Douglas County Crime Stoppers, 785-843-TIPS (8477), where information leading to arrest could lead to a cash reward up to $1,000.

What does "formally charged" mean?

But don't you love it when they go ahead and give you enough information to go look it up yourself in the booking recap?
