KINGMAN — A Superior Court judge on Wednesday declined to lower the bond for a Bullhead City woman charged with armed robbery.
Misty Anne Dyer, 32, is charged with armed robbery, first-degree burglary, aggravated assault and theft of a firearm. She is being held in custody at the Mohave County Jail in Kingman on a $15,000 bond.
Smith was arraigned in a new case on a charge of organized retail theft. That offense occurred Oct. 15 when she and a co-defendant allegedly removed items from a store in the 5200 block of Highway 95, according to court records.
Dyer’s defense attorney, Lindsay Smith, asked the judge to lower her client’s bond on the armed robbery charge or release her on her own recognizance. Smith said Dyer has every reason to appear at her hearings since she also has a dependency case and didn’t want her child taken away.
Deputy Mohave County Attorney Jeff Haws said Dyer has a failure to appear and a prior conviction from more than 10 years ago.
Superior Court Commissioner Billy Sipe Jr. rejected lowering Dyer’s bond, leaving it at $15,000. Sipe said Dyer faces seven to 21 years in prison if she is convicted of the armed robbery or burglary charges and would not be eligible for probation. She also would face up to 71/2 years in prison for the retail theft charge.
In the armed robbery case, Dyer was arrested Nov. 25 in the 400 block of River Glen Drive after she allegedly took the victim’s loaded gun, pointed it at him and demanded money. Dyer left the victim’s residence with $100 and the gun, but was arrested a few blocks away, according to Bullhead City police.
