Police warn of James’ status

A day after releasing the name of the third suspect tied to an armed robbery last week, the Selma Police Department is now urging residents to consider 18-year-old Prince Jarvis James both armed and dangerous.

In a release Wednesday afternoon, the department described James as a black male, 5-foot, 9-inches and weighing approximately 156 pounds. His last known address was 40-D Rangedale Apartments in Selma.

James is believed to be the third suspect tied to last Thursday’s armed robbery of Church’s Chicken and a robbery of Maxway on Oct. 27.

“We currently hold two felony warrants on Prince Jarvis James for first-degree robbery for Maxway and a first-degree robbery warrant for Church’s Chicken,” Lt. Johnny King with the Selma Police Department said. “Mr. James is considered armed and dangerous and anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 874-6611.”

The department has also arranged a $2 million bond for James upon his arrest.

The first-degree robbery charges are considered Class A felonies, carrying with them a possible sentence of 10 to 99 years in state prison.

The other suspects connected to the robberies include Willie Lowe, 27, and Corey James, 21, the brother of Prince James, who are currently in custody, charged with robbery and held under a $2,000,000 bond.

Lowe, who was reportedly on federal probation at the time of the robberies and his arrest, was charged and — at the request of his federal probation officer in Mobile — was transported to a federal holding facility in Uniontown.

Corey remains in the Dallas County Jail.

The two were arrested Friday after authorities had received a Crimestoppers tip, connecting the pair to the robberies. Police also recovered a .380 pistol and Tech 9 weapon at the time the two were arrested.

In addition to calling 911 or the Selma Police Department direclty, authorities can provide information on Prince James and his possible whereabouts by calling Crimestoppers at 1-866-44-CRIME.
