A man being held in the Miller County jail on an aggravated robbery charge is wanted for murder in Pasadena, Calif., in a gang-related shooting.
Charod “Pac Man” Robinson, 28, was arrested May 9 by Texarkana, Ark., police for aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm by a felon. Robinson and co-defendant Gregory Martin, 25, allegedly robbed a woman at gunpoint outside her home.
Police pulled over a Ford Taurus at 2:19 a.m. being driven by Martin at the intersection of East Seventeenth and Hickory streets. When officers searched the car they found a pair of black cloth gloves and a bandana on the driver’s seat, a pair of latex gloves in the driver’s door and a California identification card with Robinson’s name on it in a storage compartment.
While officers were talking with Martin, a woman drove up and told officers she’d just been held up outside her home and that Martin looked like one of the men who’d taken her cash and a set of car keys. Officers had made contact with Robinson, who was allegedly wearing gloves, less than 30 minutes before stopping Martin. Robinson was on foot just a short distance away. Robinson was located and taken into custody. In the area where he’d been walking, police found a set of keys and a 9 mm pistol.
Robinson agreed to waive extradition to California to face murder and other charges at a court hearing Tuesday in Miller County. Martin remains in the Miller County jail on a charge of aggravated robbery. He faces 10 to 40 years or life in prison. Martin’s bail is set at $250,000.
