Waterloo Police say a man that disappeared right before his trial was to begin is back in custody.

Aundrey Frequal Roberts Sr., 35, was arrested in Des Moines on a warrant and then transferred to the Black Hawk County Jail early Thursday.

His bond is set at $1.25 million, which includes $500,000 for the original robbery charge and $750,000 for the newly filed charge of failure to appear.

According to police, Roberts was supposed to be the getaway driver for a robbery at a Conger Street home in November 2009.

Police arrived as they were fleeing, and Roberts's son, Corey Crawley, was shot when his car hit a squad car.  Crawley was later convicted of robbery and burglary.

Roberts was arrested and then released after posting bond in February.  He then showed up to court on May 6 for a pretrial conference, but never showed up when the trial started on May 10.

The trial was postponed.
