This past Sunday police caught a break when they went to the home of 20 year old, CT who was suspected of a crime. CT was believed to have been behind the robbery of Grumpy's Country Store which took place on July 29th. He was taken into custody and formerly charged for first degree robbery, for the incident which involved the use of a weapon. He is currently held in the Pulaski County Jail where his bail has been set at $500,000. When officers came to the house to make the arrest, they also landed another suspect, taking CT's 53 year old father into custody as well, for two warrants that were currently out for his arrest. The suspect had allegedly had two pending charges for a DWI and was brought to the same jail that his son was in.
The incident took place in Missouri and they will be tried under the state's laws regarding robbery and DWI. First degree robbery involves the forcible stealing of another person's property, with the use of a deadly weapon, the threat of use of a deadly weapon, the display of a weapon or in which serious physical harm occurs. It is considered to be a class A felony which can be punishable by a minimum of 10 years in jail and a maximum of 30 years. A charge for driving while intoxicated in the state can lead to penalties including jail time, a license suspension, fines and other repercussions. This crime can range from a misdemeanor up to a felony depending on the related circumstances. With each additional conviction the penalties will be automatically increased.
