FL Couple Jailed In "Grand Theft" Robbery: Sought to rob "cracker," opted for mentally-challenged
The Smoking Gun ^ | September 20, 2013

Posted on 09/21/2013 12:24:00 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A mentally challenged Florida man who had saved up for months to purchase a copy of "Grand Theft Auto V" was robbed of the video game as he left a GameStop store this week, police report.

After buying the game Tuesday afternoon, Rohan Dawkins was approached in a Delray Beach parking lot by a couple who pulled up in a car. After asking Dawkins for the time, Tommy Davis, 27, grabbed the bag containing the best-selling game, which was released this week.

When Dawkins sought to retrieve the item, Adele Jones, 25, allegedly kicked and punched the 21-year-old Dawkins, according to Delray Beach Police Department reports.

After swiping the game, Davis and Jones (seen in the above mug shots) drove to a second GameStop, where they unsuccessfully sought to return the game for a refund. Investigators believe that the couple subsequently sold the game to a third party.

A police report valued the stolen copy of "Grand Theft Auto V" at $150, an indication that Dawkins purchased a GameStop collector’s edition of the game.

Aided by store surveillance footage, Davis and Jones--parents to four children--were arrested yesterday. Dawkins identified both suspects when shown photo lineups.

During questioning, an “apologetic” Davis reportedly confessed to robbing Dawkins, claiming that he “stole the property because he needed new tires for his car.” Jones admitted that she and Davis went to GameStop intending to “catch a cracker,” which she said was slang for robbing a white person, cops reported. Instead, they robbed Dawkins, with whom Davis said she fought until Davis was able to drive away.

Davis and Jones were booked into the Palm Beach County jail on felony robbery and dealing in stolen property charges. They remain jailed in lieu of $5000 bond.

“I wanted to play the game with my sister and my cousins,” Dawkins (seen above) said yesterday at a police press conference. “I was buying it for my family and me.” Police announced last night that today they will present Dawkins with a donated copy of "Grand Theft Auto V." (3 pages)

What does “mentally challenged” mean? Does it mean that he likes to play trivia games, or do crossword puzzles?

In the game, thugs pull people out to rob their cars.
In real life, thugs jump out of cars to rob the game.

He took the short bus to school while the robbers never attended.

Holden’s people are such cowards. They have to assault people in mobs. They always attack the elderly or mentally challenged or handicapped or a lone woman (to steal her purse and run). Or they’ll sneak up behind someone and sucker punch them. They never seem to attack one on one a physically able white male Mano o Chico.

“catch a cracker”

Remember that any time someone you love plans to be anywhere near people who would use such a phrase...

Feral, ghetto-rat animals run and hunt in packs. They need exterminating.

More black on black crime? Blacks doing the crime whites (and white Hispanics) won't do? [Aren't Holder's and Obama’s sons and daughters precious?]

Police announced last night that today they will present Dawkins with a donated copy of "Grand Theft Auto V."

They should have gotten him a subscription to Rush 24/7 instead. No need to help cultivate this guy into another domestic-black savage.

Their victim that they stole the video game from was a mentally challenged (aka mentally retarded) black man, though they intended to steal the game fro a white person.

While this may be a praiseworthy act of kindness, there is also a certain amusing irony in having the cops present you with a copy of something called 'Grand Theft Auto'. :-)

Does mentally challenged mean he crosses his eyes when he goes in for his disability check?

That's retarded.

So if they claim they intended to ‘catch a cracker’ does that get them leniency?

You must not have bothered to read the article carefully. The retarded kid saved up his money for months to buy this game for himself and his family.

Instead of crackers they had pumpernickel. The money was most likely for drugs. Tires is a lame excuse.

After asking Dawkins for the time...

This seems to be the number one method of "breaking the ice" for thieves.

They wanted to “catch a cracker” and they got a black guy? So who’s mentally challenged here? Not their black victim, who went to the cops right away and got them snagged after their stupid stunts.

The sad thing is that these two losers have 4 children.

Whoa there Cowboy! I’m in my 70s and crosswords help to keep my mind sharp, just as they do for many other elderly folks. ....I don’t do video games, which seem to taint the minds of “youngsters”.
