Davenport, IA – According to the police officials, his name is William Robert Smith, 50-year-old. He was booked into the Scott County Jail late Monday morning on two counts of first-degree robbery, a Class B felony, and one count of second-degree robbery, a Class C felony.

According to the court documents, bail was set at $110,000 cash-only. Court records show he waived a preliminary hearing and will be arraigned on March 18.
