At approximately 11:53 a.m. on Thursday, April 12, Shreveport Police patrolmen were dispatched out to the 1200 block of Shreveport-Barksdale Highway relative to an armed robbery. Upon arrival, officers discovered that a male suspect had apparently attempted to rob two men of a substantial quantity of suspected marijuana.

According to preliminary information gathered at the scene of the crime, on April 11, 2012, Phillip Bowman, 21, ordered three ounces of marijuana from Quintaveous Robinson, 30. When the men met today in a parking lot on Shreveport-Barksdale Highway to conduct their transaction, Bowman produced a pellet gun and attempted to rob Robinson.

Robinson refused to comply with the would-be bandit’s demands and told him he had something for him at which time Bowman took off running on foot.

No one was injured during the incident.

Patrol officers located and detained Bowman, Robinson, and another man, identified as James Price III, 41, who was apparently with Robinson at the time of the incident.

Detectives were notified and, upon further investigation, seized two pellet guns, about 78 grams of suspected marijuana and eight bars of Xanax. Bowman, of the 9200 block of Scotch Pine Drive in Shreveport, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of second offense possession of marijuana and possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule IV narcotic.

Robinson, of the 3000 block of Essex Street in Shreveport, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of distribution of a Schedule I narcotic and possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule IV narcotic.

Price, of the 2000 block of Brookwood Drive in Shreveport, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of distribution of a Schedule I narcotic and possession with the intent to distribute a Schedule IV narcotic.
