South Florida Continues to be a Hot Spot for Armed Robberies

robbery-criminal-defense-lawyerAccording to an article in the Palm Beach Post, two men and a juvenile stormed a barbershop, wearing masks and waving guns, and robbed its employees and patrons, police said. The robbery is just one more on the list of increasing robberies in South Florida.

A police log entry says that, about 7 p.m. Friday, three men came into the Phat Headz barbershop at 1550 N. Federal Highway. They took wallets from several patrons and took cash from the business before running out, the log entry said.

Police say the three fled in a car that had been carjacked on Nov. 16 in Lake Worth but were caught a short time later. Wilhens Theodule, 19, of Lake Worth, and Daryl Leshawn Hatchett, 26, of Boynton Beach, both are in the Palm Beach County Jail, records show. Each is being held without bond. Each is charged with six counts of robbery with a firearm and six counts of aggravated battery. Hatchett also is charged with resisting an officer.

The third defendant is not in jail records, and it’s presumed he was turned over to juvenile authorities.

Records show that, before this weekend, Theodule previously was arrested in Palm Beach County three times in 2007, once in 2009, and three times this year, on charges that include attempted robbery with a firearm, resisting an officer, and burglary of a dwelling.

Robbery Defense

If you have been charged with armed robbery, strong armed robbery, or attempted robbery, your best bet is consulting a criminal defense lawyer. A criminal defense lawyer is the only person who will understand your situation and work to get you the best result from your case.

A criminal defense lawyer’s job is to make sure you are represented fairly and justly. He or she will put forth an immense amount of effort to lessen your charges or hopefully dismiss your case.
