Police on Wednesday added two more armed robbery and conspiracy charges to the list of accusations that 20-year-old Junior Fidel Ramos-Leiva faces from police in Raleigh, Garner and Durham.
Also named in the arrest warrants was 16-year-old Antonio Navarro-Saldivar, who has been charged in the same crimes as Ramos-Leiva but has so far escaped police efforts to find and arrest him.
The latest charges allege that on Oct. 4, Ramos-Leiva used a black handgun in robberies in the 2200 block of New Hope Church Road and the 3800 block of Brentwood Road. The warrants name Navarro-Saldivar as a conspirator both times.
Ramos-Leiva is listed with a home address of 1307 Turks Head Court in Zebulon. Navarro-Saldivar was arrested in May on charges of possessing a stolen car and trying to elude police, and his address then was listed as 3987 Green Road in Raleigh.
Never miss a local story.
The charges Wednesday brought Ramos-Leiva’s bail to $3.812 million. He and Navarro-Saldivar are accused of robbing a man in Raleigh on Sept. 30, a woman in Raleigh on Oct. 6 and a woman in Garner on Oct. 7. Car keys and the victims’ cars were taken in all three incidents.
On Oct. 28, Durham detectives who had been trying to solve a store hold-up on Chapel Hill Road, two robberies of woman and an attempted robbery on Oct. 7 filed charges against Ramos-Leiva and Navarro-Saldivar.
The warrants served Wednesday stated that the two stole a wallet, cash and diamond rings, valued together at $2,300, from a woman and took a wallet and $400 cash and identification from a man.
Ramos-Leiva, whose name is listed in some records as only Ramos,was due to appear before a judge Thursday on the new charges. He has court hearings on Dec. 28 and Jan. 13 on other Wake County charges. There are no court dates set on the Durham charges.
