Grand theft strings

If you wanted a violin, and you didn't want to pay for it, would you think it would be worth it to use armed robbery? One guy in town did recently.
A student on his way to school Tuesday morning was robbed of his violin and case, police said.

The incident triggered a brief lockdown at Clark High School where the student attends. He told officers a man approached him in the 5100 block of De Zavala, showed a handgun stuck in his pocket, and demanded the instrument.

Police later arrested Johnny Villarreal, 20. He faces two felony charges: aggravated robbery and unlawful use of a handgun in a school zone, along with a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.
