Surveillance video shows one of the suspects wearing a hoodie.

Tucker admits his hoodie was on camera, but he wasn’t the one wearing it.

“He points out a tear that’s on the back of the hoodie. The hoodie that we got from his residence had a tear,” Said Locey.

Also police seized 2 phones from Tucker’s house.

Tucker’s Attorney says his client maintains his innocence.

The case is bound over to Superior Court and the judge did not issue a bond.
