Armed robbery suspect formally charged

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma man accused of robbing an employee at gunpoint at a local mobile home park was back in court Tuesday where he was formally charged. 

We're also learning he's tied to at least two other crimes.

37-year-old Jared Scott Gracie faces 10 felony counts including aggravated assault and theft.

Two of those felonies are tied to two separate cases.

The first is a burglary that happened on February 8 on Engler Avenue in Yuma.

That happened before the armed robbery.

The Yuma Police Department said the robbery happened earlier this month at the Lazy S Mobile Home Park where they say Gracie pulled out a gun and attacked an employee leaving him with some injuries.

Police say he then took off with some money.

We spoke with a couple of locals who live near the mobile home park.

One neighbor described the area as calm.

"I have a lot of things they could steal but no one has stolen from me. I mean last time someone stole, that was like 22 years ago and it wasn’t anything big," said Guadalupe Dominguez, who lives near the mobile home park.

But another said she has to take extra precautions to feel safe. 

"Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. I mean I have ring cameras, so that helps a lot," shared Karen White, who lives near the mobile home park.

And she too has been a burglary victim. "I mean I have had some theft and that is usually when I am out of town," said White.

White also shared theft isn’t the only thing she has to look out for. "I mean you know there is a lot of speeding on the street here during the day, but at night it's fine you know," she shared.

Gracie also faces one count of theft for a separate crime that took place after the armed robbery. 

He's being held at the Yuma County Jail on a bond of $275,000, much higher than his previous bond of $32,000.

He’s scheduled to be back in court next week.
