"Numerous" community tips, as well as information from two co-defendants, led to the arrest of D'Angelo Davis, according to court testimony Monday.
Davis appeared in Columbus Recorder's Court, facing two counts of armed robbery and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Police told the court that Davis is allegedly the fourth in an armed robbery ring that was busted in November. The ring's other members Dominique Hugh Leonard, 17, William Leonard, 20, and Darius Pollard, 17 are suspected in nine burglaries committed between Oct. 11 and Nov. 16.
At each, he and Pollard threatened employees with their handguns and demanded money.
When the Domino's manager attempted to close her register after emptying it of cash, the robbers allegedly threatened her again with their weapons. "B----, don't think I'm stupid," one said, according to court testimony.
The Domino's robbery was captured on surveillance video. "Numerous" tips pointed Columbus police toward the Thunderbird Motel on 3455 Victory Drive, Green said; a search warrant there uncovered money and the clothing worn by the alleged robbers in the video.
Pollard, Dominique and William were all arrested during the search.
Davis was not at the motel, but both Pollard and William identified a fourth robber, who they knew only as "D'Lo." Pollard named "D'Lo" as the second Nov. 12 robber.
Davis did not give a statement in court; Green said Davis had refused to give police a statement on Saturday without his lawyer present, after he was arrested on outstanding warrants and extradited to Columbus.
Under questioning from Davis' public defender, Green said that neither the Domino's nor Captain D's employees had been asked to identify Davis.
Judge Mary Buckner set no bond for either count of armed robbery and $10,000 bond for each count of possession.
