A teenager has been charged with armed robbery after police say he and an associate robbed another person, with shots fired by one of the suspects.

Dylan M. Kimble, 18, of 2315 Fifth Ave. S., appeared in Webster County Magistrate Court Saturday where his bond was set at $50,000 cash only.

No one was injured or hit, although shots were fired in the incident on Nov. 22 in the 2200 block of 13th Ave. S., according to the criminal complaint.

The complaint states a juvenile was robbed of cash and marijuana while he was at home.

During the robbery, there was a physical confrontation and the suspect attempted to flee the scene, according to the complaint. The juvenile and his mother saw a second suspect outside.

Both suspects had guns, the complaint says.

Kimble was interviewed by police as a result of the ongoing investigation and, according to the complaint, confessed to police that he was one of the two who robbed the juvenile.

Kimble also admitted to police he was armed with a .410 shotgun pistol, the complaint states.

Kimble was also identified by his knowledge of the robbery, which was not made public, clothing found as a result of a search warrant, and the alleged victim picking him out of a lineup, according to the complaint.

In court, Kimble asked if he could be released so he could continue attending classes.

Magistrate Judge William Habhab ruled that, due to the nature of the charge, he couldn’t be released on any other terms than the cash bond.

His preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 15.
