Manager Of Boost Mobile Charged In Connection With Holdup At E. Main Street Store

Monday, July 23, 2018

The business manager of Boost Mobile at 1901 E. Main St. has been charged in connection with an armed robbery at the store.

During the holdup on July 5, a man held a gun on two customers and a clerk, then cleaned out two registers.

Eurika Latoya Garth, 36, of 1612 Citico Ave., was charged with aggravated robbery.

Facing the same charge are Timothy Lewis Byrd Jr., Charles Roosevelt Rizer III and Lendell Otis Davis.

Ms. Garth told police she went outside to smoke, then went to the bathroom after going back inside. She said the robbery was carried out while she was still in the restroom. Police said she "reacted in a surprised and upset manner" when she found the holdup had taken place.

The clerk said a gunman with his face covered came in and told the two customers to lie on the floor and not use their phones. He said the man held a gun on him as he followed him to a back room and told him to open the safe. He said the safe was already open and did not have any money in it.

The robber then took about $3,156 from both registers.

Police said cameras from Boost Mobile and nearby businesses showed a large white four-door vehicle circle the area a number of times. Ms. Garth was on her cell phone while the vehicle was circling.

The vehicle was distinctive with hubcaps on one side but not the other. It was missing trim on both sides.

Other officers were asked to be on the lookout for that vehicle.

The large white vehicle was located and found to have been driven by Byrd. Police said Byrd gave a full account of the incident.

Ms. Garth has had a number of arrests going back to 2001.
