(WDEF) UTC Police officers apprehended one suspect and they are seeking a second suspect in relation to an alleged armed robbery which was reported on campus Monday, December 9. Charges have been filed against Chico D. Baugus of Antioch, Tennessee, at the Hamilton County Jail. He was apprehended near campus.
UTC Police say it appears the two UTC students who reported the robbery had met the two suspects previously. Two laptop computers and two cell phones were reported taken. All the property was recovered by UTC Police.
UTC Police believe this was not a random crime. There appears to be no connection between this armed robbery and another armed robbery that occurred on campus on December 1.
The investigations into both incidents continue.
UTC maintains an increased police presence initiated after the December 1 incident.
