A teenager was arrested Wednesday at Shoemaker High School on an aggravated robbery charge.

Taron Marquise Tillman-Ratliff, 17, was arraigned Thursday by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

A Killeen resident reported to police that a person known to him as “Doobie” robbed him at his home, according to the arrest affidavit. The resident reported he was hit in the face, had a gun pointed at him and told to be quiet. A blanket was put over the victim’s head while his electronics and other items were removed from the home.

Items were recovered at a local pawn shop, and Tillman-Ratliff was identified in the surveillance footage, the affidavit stated.

After his arrest, police took Tillman-Ratliff to the Killeen City Jail and discovered a Xanax pill wrapped in tissue in his hand, the affidavit stated. He also was charged with possession of a dangerous drug. His bond is set at $105,000.

In an unrelated case, Noe Pena Ramos Jr., 42, was arraigned on a charge of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, 1 gram or more but less than 4 grams. His bail was set at $30,000.
