Charges against Britian Crutcher in a carjacking last Nov. 17 were bound to the Grand Jury on Tuesday. Police were led to the stolen Mercedes-Benz after Crutcher was broadcasting on Facebook Live while driving around in the car that had been BOLOed (Be on the Lookout).

Robert Townsend testified he was visiting friends on Milne Street when a younger black male displayed a pistol and demanded money from everyone.

He said the suspect pistol whipped him and took his billfold containing $300 cash. He said also taken was the keys to his 2011 Mercedes.

He said he had $5,000 cash in the glove box of the Mercedes that was taken when the lock was ripped off the glove compartment.

The victim said Crutcher was not the man who robbed him, but police said Crutcher was found driving the Mercedes Benz on Germantown Road the next day.

He was the only occupant in the vehicle.

General Sessions Court Judge Gary Starnes also revoked a prior probation against Crutcher.

Crutcher was charged in the March 2011 residential robbery at 1994 Appling St. in which the victims were forced to disrobe. Crutcher, who was 19 at the time, was charged with aggravated robbery, three counts of aggravated kidnapping, three counts of aggravated assault and theft over $1,000.
