— A probationer awaiting trial on armed-robbery charges has been charged in connection with a second armed robbery, Fayetteville police said Thursday.

Eddie Clay Norwood III, 21, was arrested Wednesday in connection with a Dec. 30, 2010, robbery. He was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and felony conspiracy.

He was given a $41,000 unsecured bond.

Police said that Norwood posted a $25,000 secured bond in January after being charged in connection with a Dec. 21, 2010, robbery. In that case, he also faces charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and felony conspiracy.

He is serving 24 months of probation for a June 2010 conviction for felony breaking and entering, according to state Department of Correction records.

    They keep letting him out so he can rob more people to pay his next bond? Maybe they keep letting him out in the hopes that someone will kill him and save them court costs, but it will probably end up that he kills somebody first. Ridiculous.

    Probation. Unsecured bond. How many more armed robberies will this fellow have time to commit before he comes to trial for the first one? We'll see him up on a murder charge before he's ever sent to prison.

    Why keep giving people like this chances to commit more crime by releasing with light sentences?
