Milwaukee man charged with a dozen armed robberies, other burglaries

by

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A $150,000 cash bond has been set for a Milwaukee man charged with a dozen armed robberies and a pair of burglaries.

Authorities said 22-year-old Kenneath Turner-Harris was free on a signature bond when he carried out his alleged crime spree from November through January.

Police arrested him after a high-speed chase. Prosecutors said the defendant’s DNA was found on a car stolen during the robbery of a sports bar employee in West Allis – and Turner-Harris’s blood was also found at a home burglary in Milwaukee.

Both those crimes were reported in early to mid-November.

Prosecutors said the man went on to commit numerous holdups throughout Milwaukee County. Police are still investigating several incidents.

Turner-Harris faces 17 felony counts of armed robbery, robbery by force, burglary, firearm possession by a convicted felon, and eluding officers. He was placed on electronic monitoring, and he’s due back in court a week from Tuesday when it will be decided if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
