Cpl. Cary Jackson, an investigator with the Griffin Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division, testified at the hearing.
“On Oct. 28, 2009, we got a call to an armed robbery-slash-home invasion,” he said.
Jackson said the incident took place at 582 Elle’s Way and involved three adults and four juvenile victims, all of whom were watching a basketball game prior to the incident.
According to Jackson, at some point during the game, Jonathan Terrell, the homeowner, told Sterling Martin, the second adult man at the residence, to “go to the store for a six-pack.”
Upon his return to the residence, Martin told authorities he was confronted while still in his vehicle by a man with a handgun.
“Before I could get out the door, a black male pointed a TEC-9 at my — at my chest — and asked if I was ready to die,” Jackson quoted from Martin’s written statement given to investigators.
Martin reported that the perpetrator then told him, “I’m going in for the weed and $10,000 in the attic.”
Once Martin and the suspect, who was later identified by victims in the incident as Henderson, entered the residence, Henderson allegedly threatened everyone present by claiming he “had enough bullets to spray the house.”
Jennifer Terrell, the only woman present, told investigators she attempted to call 911 on her cell phone, but Henderson said, “You don’t want to do that.”
Jackson said Henderson searched for the drugs and money he claimed were in the residence, but did not locate anything.
Henderson then allegedly stole a set of keys from Jennifer Terrell’s purse and fled the residence.
Henderson was arrested the following day and subsequently positively identified by at least two of the adult victims.
Spalding County Chief Magistrate Judge Rita Cavanaugh said she found probable cause for Henderson to be bound over to stand trial on all charges in Spalding County Superior Court.
