MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department has made arrests in two unrelated robbery cases.

Omarion Taylor, 18, and Torez Zeigler, 45, are both charged with first-degree robbery.

Investigators said Taylor’s charge stems from a robbery on March 17 in the 4900 block of Hatton Avenue. The crime happened around 8:15 p.m.

According to court documents, the suspect took approximately $250 from the victim while holding them at gunpoint.

Taylor was arrested Tuesday while on bond for earlier charges including breaking/entering a vehicle, receiving stolen property, and reckless endangerment.

Zeigler is accused of committing a robbery Tuesday around 7:30 p.m. in the 4000 block of Eastern Boulevard.

Court documents indicate he took money from a business’s cash register before brandishing and then pointing a pistol at an employee as he was attempting to flee.

Court documents list a number of cases against Zeigler including for theft and burglary dating back to the early 1990s.

Both suspects are being held at the Montgomery County Detention Facility on bonds of $60,000 each.
