    On Monday, just after 6 a.m., authorities received the report of a robbery that had taken place near the intersection of North Court and Carter streets in Ottumwa.

    The victim reported that he had made arrangements online to sell a used cell phone. When he met with the suspect to complete the sale, the suspect pulled out a handgun and demanded the phone.

    He has been charged him with First-Degree Robbery, a Class B felony.

    Due to the felony charges, Miller was automatically waived to adult court.

    Miller has been arraigned and remains in custody at the Lee County Juvenile Detention Facility in Montrose, Iowa.
