TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Officers with the Tallahassee Police Department arrested an individual for a Valentine’s Dary armed robbery near FSU.

TPD responded to a call of an armed robbery on Conradi Street on Feb. 14, 2022. As officer arrived on scene they were met by a male victim.

He told officers that he lived at the address and the parking garage shared access with a neighboring apartment complex called Legacy Apartment, according to the arrest affidavit.

The victim said he parked his car on the fifth floor of the garage in the southwest corner and as he exited the car he noticed three men walking towards the sixth floor.

He informed police, as he gathered his belongings the three men walked towards him, according to TPD. One of those men approached him and yelled “run your pockets,” he then pulled out an all black what appeared to be a “glock-style” hand gun and yelled “I’m serious, run your pocket,” the affidavit says.

The victim handed the man his Burberry wallet, gray iPhone XS Max and blue Patagonia backpack that had his Macbook Air and clothes in it.

The suspect and two other men ran towards the stairwell in one direction while the victim ran towards his apartment. As he ran, the victim noticed the three men ran southbound towards the FSU bike trail. He then used his roommate’s cellphone to call 911.

The victim reported to officers that he had several bank cards both credit and debit cards, along with several other identification and insurance cards. He also provided the officers with the serial number and IMEI number to both his phone and laptop.

TPD’s Criminal Investigation Bureau investigated and later identified Kyle Jackson as one of the three men in the robbery. TPD later received a warrant for his arrest. At this time the two other suspects have not been identified.
