A $50k cash only and $50k secured bond set for two Pine Bluff men for burglary

A reported residential burglary Friday evening resulted in the arrest of two men found at the residence.

Jeremy Lawrence, 21, and Kimthimthy Raymond, 18, were taken into custody after police were sent to a house on West 29th Avenue.

During a court hearing Monday, Deputy Prosecutor Joe West read from an affidavit by Detective Corey Wilfong to explain the circumstances that led to the arrest.

West said Lawrence is currently on probation after being convicted of robbery and Raymond has no prior convictions or pending charges.

Because of the prior conviction, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $50,000 cash only bond for Lawrence and a $50,000 secured bond for Raymond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge them with residential burglary.

They were told to come back to court Dec. 27.
