Miles K. Ball, Sr., 31, is facing one count each of robbery, theft, assault and criminal damaging, according to court records. He pleaded not guilty in the Clark County Municipal Court on Thursday. Bond was set at $18,500.

On Aug. 29, Ball is accused of placing several items, including a laptop, router and clothing worth more than $1,000, in a shopping cart and walking out of the Walmart at 200 S. Tuttle Road without paying. He was confronted by employees, but walked away and fled in a vehicle, according to a police report.

On Oct. 8, Ball filled a cart with more than $1,000 in items at the Walmart store at 2100 N. Bechtle Ave. and attempted to leave through the fire exit, a police report said. An employee approached Ball as he was placing the items into his car when he said: “You come any closer, I will lay your (expletive) out.” He then fled in the car that later came back stolen from Champaign County.
