Birmingham Man Charged With Robbery

A 19 year-old Birmingham man who recently fled a Birmingham hospital after being charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree escape is being investigated on two counts of first-degree robbery in connection to another holdup that occurred several months ago. Deandre Miles stands accused of a Birmingham home invasion and is being investigated for the robbery of two men at another Birmingham home two months earlier. Both crimes occurred in broad daylight.

In the April robbery for which Miles is being investigated, home video surveillance footage shows a homeowner standing outside with a repair man around 2 p.m. when two burglars, who had already ransacked the inside of the house, appear at the front of the house armed with weapons and rob the two men. The identity of the robbers was unclear and no suspects were immediately arrested or charged.

After another home invasion last week that resulted in a suspect being shot by a man in the home, police took Miles into custody at St. Vincent's hospital after learning he had been admitted for a gunshot wound. Miles was being released from the hospital when he fled. He got out his wheelchair as he was being wheeled outside and ran away, still in handcuffs.

Miles was taken back into custody and charged with the most recent home invasion after his mother helped police in his capture, and his bond was set at $120,000. Miles could face significant jail time if he is convicted of the crimes he is charged with, as well as the crimes for which he is currently under investigation.

It is important to note that everyone charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Police won't be able to rely solely on the circumstantial similarities between the two robberies to charge Miles with the April crime, but must produce evidence that in some way connects him to the robbery. If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, contact an attorney who has years of experience fighting criminal cases such as this.
