Florence police are seeking Dezmon Melik Robertson in connection with a First Degree Armed Robbery. This is the second armed robbery the 19 year old Robertson has been alleged to have carried out in the past 13 months.
In June 2016, Robertson and a confederate robbed an Oak Hills man at gunpoint. During the same alleged crime spree, Robertson was involved in the robbery of at least four residences and/or vehicles, threatening the Oak Hills resident who confronted him and his partner. When apprehended later that day, officers reported finding drugs in Robertson’s vehicle.
Dezmon Robertson was indicted on those charges and denied the youthful offender status he applied for. Now he’s again sought in an armed robbery that took place at Creekside Apartments at 2424 Roberts Lane off Wood Avenue in North Florence. Authorities arrested Rickey Robertson III in connection with that armed robbery, but are still seeking Dezmon Robertson who fled the stopped getaway vehicle on foot.
Robertson is described as a black male with short dark hair. He stands 5’7″ tall and weighs 156 pounds. His last known address was on Marengo Street in West Florence. If you have information about Dezmon Melik Robertson, call Florence police at 256-760-6595 or text a tip to 274637 using key word FPDTIP plus your message or call Shoals Crime Stoppers at 256-386-8685.
