Norfolk man turns himself in after Newport News robbery

A Norfolk man is facing serious criminal charges in connection with an alleged robbery of a Newport News electronics store in early October. He turned himself into authorities last week. The fact the man turned himself in may go a long way toward his defense, assuming he consulted with an attorney prior to making that decision. The 26-year-old man was extradited from Colorado prior to making the choice to turn himself in on the robbery charge, which also includes other serious felony charges. He's currently in Newport News City Jail without bond.

According to reports, the Mega Bass Store on Jefferson Avenue was robbed around 11 a.m. on Tuesday of last week. Reportedly, two males went into the business, allowed customers to leave, then held up the owner at gun point. They instructed the owner to empty his safe, but he said he didn't own a safe. At that point the men taped the owner's hands to his sides and carried him to a back room. The suspects allegedly got away with a laptop, a computer storage device and an unidentified amount of cash from the store's register.

There are no reports as to the other man's whereabouts or whether or not he has been arrested in the incident. The man who was detained is facing charges for abduction, robbery, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony and conspiracy to commit a felony. These serious charges carry long-term consequences and it will be vital for the suspect to mount a strong defense.

It's important to know your rights under the law when facing serious criminal charges and to remember in the criminal justice system, anyone accused of a crime is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
