Troy Univ. Police Make Arrest in Armed Robbery on Campus
From the CBS 8 Troy Newsroom-- Troy University Police say students should feel safer after they arrested a man in connection with an armed robbery on campus and are receiving a grant for additional lighting.
Troy University Police Chief John McCall says he and his team have been working around the clock to make campus feel safe again, and says so far, he believes they've made great progress.
Police say King was armed when he robbed a student in front of the Math and Science Complex on campus on April 1.
"There are a lot of spots that are dark at night, like really dark, because we have so many trees and so much hidden spots, so it's nice to know we're getting more light," says student Heidi Collier.
Police say King is being held in the Pike County Jail on a $100,000 bond. They say he is on probation for breaking and entering charges and fraudulent use of credit cards.
