The Alabaster Police Department arrested Devary Oman Huff, who lists an address on Regent Drive in Alabaster, on Oct. 27 and charged him with felony counts of first-degree theft of property and third-degree robbery and misdemeanor counts of failure to stop after striking a fixture and third-degree domestic violence.

The charges came after an Oct. 12 incident, during which Huff allegedly stole a victim’s keys and purse before he “punched and threw the victim into a steel pillar” before stealing the victim’s 2016 Ford Fusion vehicle and fleeing the scene, striking a mailbox in the process.

First-degree theft of property is a Class B felony, and carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison upon conviction. Third-degree robbery is a Class C felony, and is punishable by up to 10 years in prison upon conviction.

According to Shelby County District Court records on Oct. 28, Huff has already had his initial court appearance, but does not yet have a future court date listed.
