Three more teens charged in August robbery

Anniston police arrested three more teenagers last week in connection with an August robbery.

Police charged Christian Ladarious Lawler and two 17-year-old boys, all of Anniston, each with first-degree robbery.

Sgt. Randy Grier said Lawler punched and kicked a man, shot him with a paintball gun and stole his bag with his cellphone inside around 1 p.m. Aug. 10 outside a home in the 400 block of 29th Street.

The victim did not seek medical attention, Grier said.

Grier said he could not comment on the 17-year-old boys’ cases because they were juveniles.

Lawler and the other teenagers were each booked into the Calhoun County Jail with bond set at $30,000. As of Wednesday, none of them were listed as inmates in the jail’s online roster. Each of their preliminary hearings are scheduled for Sept. 17.

First-degree robbery is a Class A felony. If convicted, each suspect could face a life sentence in prison and owe up to a $60,000 fine.
