MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - He got a charge, but it probably wasn’t the kind he was expecting. According to court documents, a Montgomery man is facing one count of robbery after allegedly stealing a phone charger from an area store.
Court documents stated the incident happened at the AT&T store on Ann Street when a suspect, later identified as Jeremy Dequain Hogan, 25, walked in. He left with a Pure Gear Charging Cord, a product with a retail value of $34.99.
The crime could have resulted in a theft charge, but court documents indicate Hogan used force to overcome an employee. That bumped the charge up to third-degree robbery, a Class C felony.
The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility.
Bond was set at $60,000. That’s enough money to buy more than 1,700 charging cords.
