CENTER POINT – Just before 12:30 a.m. Monday Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of a robbery in the 200 block of Polly Reed Road.
Deputies arrived on the scene and spoke to a 17-year-old victim and his mother. The victim stated that he was walking back to his apartment from a nearby fast food restaurant when he was approached by two black males, one of which pulled a handgun on the victim and said, “give me everything you got.” The victim ran away, and when he got home, told his mother what happened.
A description of the suspects was broadcast to other deputies in the area, and one of them spotted the suspects walking along Center Point Parkway. Upon seeing the deputy, the suspects fled on foot. The deputy captured one of the suspects and he was identified as the suspect that pulled the gun.
Derrick Lynn Reezer, 21 of Fairfield, was arrested and charged with robbery n the first degree, resisting arrest and attempting to elude. He was also found to have an outstanding warrant for violation of electronic monitoring.
Reezer remains in the Jefferson County Jail with a bond of $70,600.
