Trio charged with robbery

A woman and two men are accused of robbing a man at the Colony Club.

Prosecutors allege that 18-year-old Mya Smith, who works as a stripper, arranged to meet the man at the motel on September 10.

Smith’s 19-year-old boyfriend, Demetrius Bastian, and his 18-year-old friend Kelito Johnson, robbed the man of $3,000 and a silver chain, worth $150.

Smith, Bastian and Johnson appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney on Monday on charges of robbery.

They also face the alternative charge of receiving the stolen goods.

The defendants denied the charges and were denied bail.

Magistrate McKinney set a trial date of October 27.

They will remain in custody until trial, if they are not granted bail in the Supreme Court.
