Dunn arraigned for 17th Street robbery
NEBRASKA CITY – 28-year-old James Dunn was arraigned in district court Monday on charges of robbery, possession of burglar tools and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
Dunn is suspected of trying to rob Clayton Rakes of Nebraska City at gunpoint on May 1, but fled when Rakes took cover behind a pickup truck. Rakes said he had dialed 911 without the gunman realizing it.
Police apprehended Dunn outside of his residence in the neighborhood saying he was wearing a green bandanna and black clothing as described by the victim.
Police say a man wearing a green bandanna is also suspected of a theft at 1710 Fifth Avenue on Jan. 27, but Dunn is not charged in that case.
Police searched his residence looking for weapons and items that might link him to a robbery of Mike Ragland on Feb. 2, but court records do not indicate the finding any such evidence. Police say ammunition and BB guns were found.
Dunn was released on a $1,000 bond provision.
