Armed phone theft leads to arrest
01/08/2021

(KAIR)--An Atchison man, accused of stealing a woman’s phone while armed with a knife last month, is in custody.

According to a report from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, 20-year-old Taggart Lee was arrested Friday morning in the 1100 block of Santa Fe Street on an Atchison County District Court warrant charging him with aggravated robbery, theft, and criminal damage to property.

Following his arrest, Lee was booked into the Atchison County Jail. His bond is set at $50,000.

According to Wilson’s report, Lee’s arrest follows an Atchison Police investigation focused on an early evening disturbance December 31 at an apartment in the 200 block of North 3rd Street.
It’s alleged that during the disturbance, Lee took a phone belonging to a 44-year-old woman, with investigators saying Lee was armed with a knife at the time the phone was forcibly taken.

According to the report, Lee fled the scene of the alleged crime, “and was not located until police developed information Friday morning that he was at a residence in the 1100 block Santa Fe."

Lee was taken into custody without incident.
