Asia Lewis, who the prosecution says served as a look-out in one armed robbery, was granted a $25,000 bond Friday.


A third co-defendant, Asia Lewis, who the prosecution said served as a lookout in one robbery, was granted a $25,000 bond.

Assistant District Attorney Justin Jones named Steven Cross and Terrell Johnson as the men who held up four gas stations at gunpoint with a lever-action rifle.

Cross was arrested Jan. 4 when deputies were sent to his house to investigate someone firing a rifle in his front yard. While he was in custody on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, investigators matched the rifle to the one used in the robberies, Jones said.

Cross said the robberies were Johnson’s idea, and John­son claimed the opposite, Jones said.

Both are charged with four counts of armed robbery and four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Cross
was given an additional four counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Lewis was charged with armed robbery after Jones said she gave the all-clear on the second robbery.
