The trial for a Fort Dodge man accused of robbery and theft in District Court for Carroll County is scheduled to begin next month. According to court records, 19-year-old Tyraius Percel McElroy submitted his written pleas of not guilty to one count of first-degree robbery, a class B felony, and first-degree theft, a class C felony, on Wednesday. The jury trial for this case is slated to begin Tuesday, Nov. 19 at the courthouse. McElroy was arrested by the Carroll Police Department for his involvement in an incident in the 1200 block of Plaza Drive during the early morning hours of Sept. 19. Authorities allege he assaulted a man and took his wallet. While McElroy was leaving the scene in a BMW 525I, the victim attempted to stop him and was dragged by the vehicle until he let go. If found guilty of both charges, McElroy could be sentenced to a maximum of 35 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
