A 17-year-old Killeen resident was arraigned on a charge of aggravated robbery by Justice of the Peace Claudia Brown on Wednesday.

Lamarkius Quentrell Minton was arrested Oct. 9 after police said he robbed a man and a woman sitting in a car at gunpoint about 12:15 a.m.

Minton drove past the two people sitting in a car in the 2600 block of Maria Drive, according to police.

A few minutes later, he turned around and pulled up alongside their car. Minton then got out of the car and tapped on the window with what was believed to be a handgun, according to an affidavit.

The two people sitting in the car rolled down the car window, and Minton shoved the gun into the car and demanded money, according to the affidavit. He then took both of the occupants' wallets and cellphones.

Police found Minton less than five minutes later, walking away from a car in the 4500 block of Hondo Drive that matched the description given by the victims. Minton was with three people, two of whom were minors.

Officers searched the car. They found a wallet that belonged to one of the victims in the rear pocket of the front passenger seat, according to the affidavit.

The location of the robbery was less than a half-mile away from Minton’s listed home address.

Minton was identified by the victims in a lineup, police said. He was in the Bell County Jail on $75,000 bond.

Minton and the other three people police came across were also involved in a robbery on Oct. 8 in the 4900 block of Teal Drive and another on Gemini Lane, according to police.

The other three suspects were taken into custody; the two juveniles were placed in the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center, and the adult was taken to the Killeen City Jail. All three are awaiting charges.
