Police Investigate Robbery of Produce Vendor
October 16, 2013
UPDATE / October 16
As the investigation continued, it was determined Mr. Allen Streeter was originally misidentified by the witness and further efforts by TPD's Criminal Investigations Division, led to the confirmation of an alibi for him. Mr. Allen Streeter has since been released and all charges have been dropped.
As the case progressed, a new suspect was developed, Mr. Odell Baity, who looks very similar to Mr. Allen Streeter. With the assistance of the US Marshal's Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force, Mr. Odell Baity and Mr. Bobby Streeter have been arrested in connection with the above robbery.
Probable Cause Affidavits are forthcoming and will be made available once they have been entered into the Leon County Jail.
- Bobby Streeter, B/M, DOB: 12/01/92
- Odell Baity, B/M, DOB: 09/09/92
Previously Reported / October 12
On October 11th at approximately 3:10PM, TPD Officers responded to 402 Glenview Drive to investigate a robbery that had occurred. The victim, 90 year old Lloyd Gibson, told officers that he had been robbed of money by two suspects who had pretended to be interested in buying some of the produce that he normally sells out of his driveway. The suspects suddenly grabbed Gibson, robbed him of his money, sprayed him with OC pepper spray and battered him. The suspects fled the area on foot. Responding officers searched the area for the suspects, to include a police K-9 track, but to no avail.
Investigator Rob Newberry with the Violent Crimes-Robbery Unit responded to the scene and took lead on the investigation. Investigator Newberry interviewed witnesses and evaluated all of the available evidence and other leads. Investigator Newberry was subsequently able to positively identify the two suspects. TPD officers later located and arrested one of the suspects, Allen Streeter.
