Suspect in car break-ins held in lieu of $750 cash bail


Police found a medicine bottle in Robertson’s coat. He said it belonged to his uncle — but the prescription was made out to a Surrey Drive resident, according to Faye’s report.

Robertson then said he found the bottle on the ground. Police found loose change, cigarettes, a small pocket knife, a hat, an iPhone and a cell phone charger in the pockets of Robertson’s coat, Faye wrote.

After being placed under arrest and handcuffed, Robertson refused to answer any more questions. He initially said he did not understand his rights as a criminal defendant, but then acknowledged he was aware of them from his previous arrests, according to Faye’s report.

During a telephone conversation with his grandmother, police heard Robertson say, “I robbed a few cars,” Faye wrote. Davis returned to the station with two bags filled with items stolen from the cars of Surrey Drive residents.

Robertson resides on the next street over from Surrey Drive.

This was not the first time Robertson got into trouble with the law. He was arrested March 8 and charged with assault and battery on a household member and witness intimidation.
