Robbery and Extortion

A Case Example
WithKevin B. Kinnee

July 10, 19XX (0958 hours). Officers were dispatched to N. 4th Street and Molle Road on an armed robbery call. When officers arrived, the victim William More stated that he was at 34 W. Lison Avenue, Indianapolis, Marion County, Indiana, to pick up his Mercury Merkur, which he had given to Willie Johns (b/f) to sell on consignment. The victim stated that while in the residence he was enticed by Willie Johns into the bedroom. More advised the officers that a second subject (b/m/24, 5 ft 9 in., 190 to 200 lb.) displayed a sawed-off shotgun and pointed it at him after he protested picture-taking. Mr. More stated the black male, at gun point, took his stainless steel 22 caliber revolver, two gold rings, and $360.00 in cash. The victim’s 1987 red Mercury Merkur was also taken. On the same day, William More spoke to robbery detectives. During the interview, Mr. More stated that while the black male held the sawed-off shotgun on him, the subjects laughed and told him that they would be able to blackmail him for whatever they wanted.
