Robbery suspect appears in court

BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - A suspect wanted in connection to a robbery in Blytheville made his first court appearance.

Earlier this month, police in Gregg County, TX arrested Austin Wayne Nicholson, 22, of Blytheville.

Investigators say on June 27 he and Jakob Flaminio forced their way into a home in the Capri Apartments.

A Blytheville District Court judge found probable cause Monday to charge Nicholson with aggravated residential burglary, theft of property, and second-degree battery. The judge set Nicholson's bond at $35,000 cash-only and ordered him to appear in circuit court on Oct. 31.

North Carolina police arrested Flaminio on Aug. 22.
