Man facing October robbery charges makes bond

One of two men held since October on armed robbery accusations has made his bond, Muscogee County Jail records state.

Corvelle Buford, 20, is now out on bond on accusations he robbed a 54-year-old man and 29-year-old woman within moments of each other in early October. His co-defendant, 19-year-old Stefon Antonio Hollis, remains in jail under bond, records state.

Hollis had no bond and Buford was being held on $90,000 in bond pending their trial, which was scheduled to begin last week. The prosecutor, however, asked Chief Judge John Allen on May 22 to postpone the case. Allen allowed the continuance until June 11, but he then gave each man a bond of $7,500.

Buford made his bond shortly after Allen's decision.

The robberies happened the night of Oct. 2. The first was at Lawyers Lane and Hood Street, where a man said he was pistol-whipped by two suspects who took his wallet. He gave officers a description of the suspects.

Just after midnight, two armed men took a purse from a 29-year-old Club Hill apartments resident in the parking lot of the 2840 Warm Springs Road complex, police said. After officers arrived, the woman’s husband gave them a description of the suspect’s vehicle.

An officer arrested the suspects moments later on Cherokee Avenue.
