Vehicle Stop for Blown Headlight Leads to Arrest of Armed Robbery Suspect


January 24, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                             
This morning’s stop of a red Pontiac Grand Am for having a blown headlight led to the arrest of an admitted convenience market robber who turned out to be a convicted felon on probation in a robbery case.
Keith Dairus Boone, 22, is jailed in lieu of $130,000 bond on charges that he robbed Buy and Save Market, 201 Glenrose Avenue, at 9:25 p.m. last night, and that he unlawfully possessed a semi-automatic pistol.
South Precinct Officer John Jeanbaptiste proactively stopped the Pontiac on Harding Place at 2:54 a.m. due to the headlight violation.  Boone was wearing a gray and black Oakland Raiders cap.  Officer Jeanbaptiste recalled that a man matching Boone’s description and wearing a similar hat was involved in last night’s robbery.  Detectives responded to the scene and, during a subsequent search of the car, recovered a nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol under the driver’s seat.  Boone acknowledged that he robbed the store and that the cash on his person was part of the take.
Boone was convicted of facilitating aggravated robbery in January 2013 and received a three-year probated sentence.
