May 9, 2007 - Police apprehended a 21-year-old Winnsboro man about 20 minutes after he was alleged to have robbed a man at gunpoint on Freeman Street Tuesday afternoon.

Sulphur Springs Police Patrol Officer Pat Leber, who was just finishing up a traffic stop nearby, responded at 2:56 p.m. Tuesday after the victim called police.

The Emory man said that as he was driving down Freeman Street, he was approached by a man who pressed a gun to his neck, demanding money. The Emory man said he gave the man $100 he had in his pocket, and the man fled. He saw the robber run toward nearby apartments.

Leber, joined by officer Matt Glenn and Sgt. William Mayeux, went to the apartments, where they found Jeremy Blake “Coby” Mosley, who matched the description given by the victim. He was found to have a pistol and sum of cash.

Mosley was arrested at 3:12 p.m. for aggravated robbery, after the Emory man told police he was 100 percent sure Mosley was the man who had robbed him at gunpoint. The gun and cash were also seized.

Mosley was arraigned Wednesday morning and released from the county jail at noon after posting $100,000 bond. If convicted, Mosely faces 5 to 99 years or life in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
