Robbery Arrest

CAMDEN COUNTY – A 24-year-old Camdenton man is in jail and charged with robbery in an alleged incident that occurred at a residence located on Claremont Ridge Road.

According to the Camden County Sheriff’s Department (CCSD) on May 9 at approximately 10:35 a.m., the Camden County Communications Center received a 911 call in reference to a robbery that just occurred at the residence.

The CCSD described the incident in this way:

A female occupant of the residence was inside while a female friend and children were outside. A male subject, driving an early 2000 model dark grey four-door sedan, drove into the driveway and approached the female in the yard. It was alleged that he was brandishing an unknown type of knife.

The suspect later identified as Joshua N. Seevers, demanded money from victim number one but that victim had no money so Seevers took a cell phone from the victim.

He then took victim number one into the residence where victim number two and the children were located. A teenager inside ran from the residence, entered her vehicle and left the area, returning sometime later.

Seevers then asked victim number two for money. According to victim number two, she attempted to grab the knife from the suspect and he attempted to grab a cell phone from victim number two and then left the residence in the dark grey vehicle.

Victim number one’s phone was discarded and found in the yard of a neighbor.

Seevers, of Camdenton, is being held at the Camden County Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond and is charged with Robbery 1st Degree, Armed Criminal Action, Burglary 1st Degree and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.

No one was injured in the incident.
