Accused Robber Rearrested After Skipping Court Date

One of the suspects charged in connection with last November’s armed robbery at Smithfield Chicken N Barbecue on North Brightleaf Boulevard has been rearrested after reportedly failing to show up for his court date. Smithfield Police picked up Jamal James English at a local fast food restaurant where he worked as a cashier. The 19-year-old man is charged with conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. At the time of the reported robbery, English was on probation after being convicted months earlier on larceny and break-in charges stemming from a July 2006 burglary at the Brightleaf Flea Market.
