Deputies apprehended 30-year-old means Aug. 17 and booked him into the Shelby County Jail. He was released Aug. 18 after posting bonds totaling $90,000.
First-degree robbery and first-degree burglary are both Class A felonies. According to Alabama law, the suspect could spend up to life in prison if charged.
