A man and woman suspected of robbing a Central Point Dutch Bros last week were arraigned Friday in Jackson County Circuit Court, thanks to some top-notch surveillance video.
Daniel Allexx Hance, 22, was jailed on $207,500 bail after police arrested him at 11:30 a.m. Thursday in Trail, and he was arraigned Friday on four counts of second-degree robbery.
Hance's alleged accomplice, Felisha Marie Senske, 35, was arraigned on two counts of second-degree robbery. Her bail was set at $40,000.
The charges stem from a robbery that occurred at 8:43 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7, at a Dutch Bros in the 1000 block of East Pine Street. Two employees were working the coffee stand when Hance reportedly walked up to the stand. One of the employees asked what he wanted, to which he responded that he didn't care as long as the drink was sweet, according to Detective Josh Abbott.
"At that point, he pulls a gun up from his waistband," Abbott said. "He doesn't point it at them, just holds it there and says, 'Give me all the money in the till.' "
The employees gave him cash, and the robber ran westbound on East Pine Street, Abbott said. The employees called 911. The incident was caught on a store surveillance camera, which helped police due to the video quality and camera placement.
"We got great video. Very high resolution. Crystal clear," Abbott said, adding police knew Hance from previous encounters.
The video also caught a white car dropping Hance off nearby with a blonde female in the driver's seat. Police identified the driver as Senske, of the 600 block of Krista Lane, Eagle Point.
Police posted stills from the robbery surveillance video and mugshots from the pair's recent arrests on social media. Some of Hance's multiple facial tattoos, including a large spider web on his forehead, are covered up with a hat in the surveillance footage but are visible in the mugshots.
A week later, police tracked Hance to a cabin in the 800 block of Elder Mill Road in Trail, where they arrested him late Thursday morning, assisted by Jackson County SWAT and the Medford Area Drug and Gang Enforcement team.
Police arrested Senske Thursday afternoon, according to a probable cause affidavit.
The stolen money and firearm used in the robbery have not been recovered.
