Court Date Set For Alleged Robber

Cookeville police say a letter was apparently all it took for a robbery suspect to turn himself in this week.  Authorities had written the letter to 24-year-old Jeremy Juan Richardson of Birmingham, Alabama, advising him that they had a warrant for his arrest on file.  The letter suggested that it would be easier for Richardson to turn himself in than it would be for him to be chased down. Richardson apparently agreed and came to the Cookeville police department on Monday to answer the charges. He was booked at the county jail and later released on bond.  Authorities say he is the suspect in the robbery of the First Cash loan business on South Jefferson Avenue last year.  He was developed as a suspect because he reportedly left behind a receipt with his name on it.He'll be in court on the charges next month.
