CRIME!

A drug deal gone bad in August turned into a warrant arrest of one man, police said.

On Tuesday afternoon, Killeen police arrested 19-year-old Printel Locke, who according to authorities, allegedly robbed a male who was attempting to buy marijuana from him and another person.

The incident happened two months ago when Killeen police were called to the 1200 block of Wales Drive regarding an aggravated robbery.

According to the arrest affidavit, the male was trying to buy the marijuana from two people in a red Chevrolet when “one of them pointed a gun at him and asked for his money.”

The man said through the initial report Locke “placed a black handgun against (the male’s) neck and demanded (he) give (Locke) $15.”

When the man heard a second click of a gun, a fight broke out inside the vehicle.

Locke was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Tuesday.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Locke was not listed in the Bell County Jail website.
