The TV was set up to view the DVD movies, which were on the shelves in Robinson’s house.
He was charged with two counts of burglary and booked into the Iberia Parish Jail. His bond was set at $20,000. As of Thursday, he was still in the Iberia Parish Jail.
According to detective Stan Suire of the Abbeville Police Department, Robinson, who is from Mississippi, had been in Abbeville for three months,when he allegedly robbed a house on Graceland street twice. The house was burglarized on Jan. 1 when the homeowner was not home. Robinson allegedly stole the TV, a piggy bank and two rings.
The person in the home that was burglarized is a single-parent mom.
Her home was burglarized again on Jan. 21, and this time, Robinson allegedly took 134 DVDs.
Suire said he spoke to a neighbor on Graceland Street, who is friends of Robinson. The neighbor gave detective Suire Robinson’s name.
On Monday Suire called the homeowner and she came to the police station and picked up her TV and DVDs.
A twist to his arrest, according to Suire, is that Robinson’s shoe print looks to match a shoe print that was found in a couple of Abbeville elementary schools broken into a few months ago. The shoe print was sent off to the Acadian Crime Lab to see if it matches.
Robinson also lives at 400 Gauraud Avenue in Abbeville, which is on the west end of Abbeville. A handful of Abbeville businesses were broken into on the west end of Abbeville recently. Suire said no shoe prints were obtained from the break-ins.
