$1 Million Bond Set for Armed Robbery and Burglary Suspect

By November 9, 2022Press Releases

A judge has set a $1 million bond for a 56-year-old man accused of robbing a store clerk at gunpoint and breaking into two businesses and stealing merchandise.

 William F. Wilson remains housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) charged with Armed Robbery, Possession of a Deadly Weapon during a Violent Crime, Burglary First Degree, Burglary Second Degree, and Two Counts of Petit Larceny. Wilson was convicted of burglary in 2009 and 2015, and of petit larceny in 2018.

The current charges stem from three investigations.

The first crime happened on October 22, 2022, when Wilson was allegedly armed with a gun and threatened a clerk at North Beltline Boulevard Shell Gas Station, before stealing a significant amount of cigarettes.

Then on October 24, 2022, Wilson is accused of breaking into the Gaz-Bah convenience store at the 3400 block of Devine Street and stealing a significant amount of tobacco products for the second time.

Also charged in the case, Wilson’s co-defendant, Jonathan Loveless. CPD officers arrested Loveless last week and charged the 47-year-old with Second Degree Burglary and Petit Larceny.  He also remains housed at the ASGDC on a $100,000 surety bond.

In another CPD investigation on Halloween, William Wilson allegedly broke into a business at the 2000 block of Devine Street and stole multiple bottles of alcohol.

After this burglary, surveillance video helped officers provide the suspect’s clothing description. A CPD officer who was dispatched to the initial crime scene saw a man matching the description and detained him.  The suspect was later positively identified as Wilson. Officers also determined that the suspect was wearing the same clothing in at least two of the crimes.

All persons arrested/charged are presumed innocent until or unless proven guilty in a court of law.
