TEEN ROBBER SKIPS OUT ON PRE-TRIAL RELEASE
A 17-year-old armed robbery suspect, freed on pre-trial release after his mother said her other son was the real criminal, is now wanted by BSO, again, after cutting-off his electronic ankle monitor and fleeing his Deerfield Beach home.
Gregory Green was originally arrested on cocaine possession and armed robbery charges in connection with a July 11th robbery in Deerfield Beach. With an extensive juvenile arrest record, Green was adjudicated an adult and was being held without bond in BSO’s jail. The victim, who was robbed at gunpoint, twice identified Green – once in a photo lineup and again in a live lineup.
However, in a highly publicized turn-of-events, Green’s mother came forward and said her 18-year old son, Terry Flowers (Green’s half-brother), had confessed to her that he had done the robbery. On September 24th, Green’s bond was reduced to $150 and he was placed in the pre-trial release program and was ordered to remain at home, wearing a monitor on his ankle.
After receiving information that Green was seen at a Deerfield Beach park, smoking marijuana, a pre-trial officer obtained a urine sample, which tested positive for the drug on September 30th. Green’s pre-trial release status was revoked and on October 1st, deputies went to Green’s home to take him into custody. At that time, deputies learned that Green had cut the electronic device off his ankle and was on the run.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Gregory Green is urged to dial 911, or call the Broward Sheriff’s Office at 954-765-4321 or CrimeStoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
