Man arrested for using teen to stage a robbery

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Police say a store employee, a man and a teenager staged a robbery at a local Hy-Vee.

Last November, police officers responded to the Hy-Vee on Byron Avenue after a report of a robbery. A female employee told police a man with a gun robbed her.

Police now say the suspect, the store employee and a 14-year-old worked together to stage the robbery.

On Thursday, police arrested 24-year-old J.C. Shonteze Cockhren and charged him with theft in the 2nd degree and using a juvenile to commit certain offenses. Cockhren is being held in the Black Hawk County Jail on $117,000 bond.
