All six are charged with robbery by force, aggravated assault, criminal attempt at robbery, entering an auto and criminal trespass, according to Grovetown Department of Public Safety Investigator Jones Nalley. The 16-year-old also is charged with possession of a firearm by someone under 18.

The six teens went to Eagle Point apartments on Whiskey Road on Dec. 28 with the intent to rob someone, Nalley said. When they found no potential victims, the teens broke into a truck.

The owner of the truck confronted the teens with a handgun and a fight ensued. The teens took the man’s gun, shoes and a bag of tools from his truck and ran away, Nalley said.

Turner and Cochran were being held in the Grovetown jail Thursday evening on an $81,600 bond, Nalley said. The Loves and Porche are being held in the Columbia County Detention Center without bond, according to jail records.

The 16-year-old is being held in the Regional Youth Detention Center and has a detention hearing scheduled in Columbia County Juvenile Court.
