A man is facing two felony charges in Lane County after allegedly robbing two people and taking more than $10,000 worth of marijuana.
Earl Deon Bellamy is charged with one count of second-degree robbery and one count of first-degree aggravated theft, according to Lane County Circuit Court documents.
Bellamy was arrested by Eugene police on Monday on suspicion of an incident that happened Sunday. He was arraigned Tuesday. Court documents state Bellamy used or threatened “the immediate use of physical force” against two people while committing theft.
Documents also state on the same day, Bellamy knowingly committed theft of one of the people’s marijuana, with a total value of $10,000 or more.
Second-degree robbery is a Measure 11 crime in Oregon. It carries a minimum sentence of five years, 10 months, with some exceptions such as if the person has no past criminal record or if the victim was not physically injured.
Bellamy is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on Aug. 13.
