MOUNT VERNON — A 20-year-old Mt. Vernon man was arrested over the weekend in connection with an October 16, armed robbery.
Romondo S. Bootchee was arrested Saturday, November 4, by Mt. Vernon police on a Jefferson County petition to revoke probation stemming from an earlier burglary charge. The warrant set bail at $50,000.
During that arrest Bootchee was reportedly found in the possession of controlled substances with the intent to deliver, resulting in a separate bail of $50,000.
While still in custody Monday, Bootchee was presented with a new warrant, this one stemming from the investigation into the October 16 armed robbery.
The warrant charges armed robbery with a firearm and bail on the warrant was set at $100,000. The investigation reports that on October 16, Mt. Vernon police officers responded to the area of 19th and Broadway for a report of an armed robbery. After robbing the victim at gunpoint, the offender fled the area.
Bootchee remains a suspect in other weapons violations offenses in Mt Vernon and those investigations continue with additional charges possible.
He remains in the Jefferson County Jail with a total of $200,000 set for bail.
