Man charged with robbery
URBANA — A 24-year-old Urbana man has been charged in connection with the alleged robbery of a woman who police say was buying drugs from him.
Micah L. Seymour, who listed an address in the 1000 block of South Smith Road, is charged with armed robbery, aggravated robbery and robbery, all alleging that on Jan. 3 he took cannabis and cash from a 24-year-old Urbana woman while threatening to hurt her.
Assistant State's Attorney Troy Lozar said the woman allegedly had purchased cannabis from Seymour, whom she only knew by a street name. When she didn't have money she owed him for cannabis she was buying, he allegedly took out a gun and threatened to hurt her. She gave him back the cannabis she had bought and money.
Lozar said the woman saw Seymour out on Tuesday and contacted police, who arrested him then for the Jan. 3 incident.
Judge Richard Klaus set Seymour's bond at $200,000 and told him to be back in court March 5.
