Two men are facing felony charges in connection with a Killeen robbery.

Jahquan Damine Nesbitt, 18, was arraigned Wednesday on a charge of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony, by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin. Potvin also arraigned Jaccari Devon Juan Toombs, 17, on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, a state jail felony.

The charges stem from a Jan. 1 incident in which a local man was robbed at gunpoint and carjacked.

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim told police two men entered his store, a business in the 1100 block of 38th Street in Killeen, with guns.

One man placed the gun against the victim’s head, and the other placed a gun against his back. The men took the victim’s wallet and $100 from the cash register. One of the men demanded keys to the victim’s vehicle, a black Nissan Armada, and the men drove away in it, the affidavit stated.

Killeen police found the vehicle six days later with Toombs and Nesbitt inside, the affidavit stated. Police found a black glove in Nesbitt’s pocket, and a red bandanna in his sweatshirt. The victim told police the men who robbed him were wearing “red scarves” and that he briefly saw one man’s face.

The victim later identified Nesbitt in a photo lineup, the affidavit stated.

Toombs told police he was driving the stolen vehicle.

Both men are in Bell County Jail. Potvin set Nesbitt’s bail at $100,000. Toombs’ bail was set at $20,000.

    courts are way too lenient on morons like these, put their butts away for 25 or 30 years, the next time they may shoot someone, and there will be a next time[sad] with idiots like these.
