A 20-year-old man who police said missed his getaway ride posted a $6,300 bond this morning on robbery-related charges.

Chattanooga police still are searching for three other suspects in connection to a home invasion robbery Thursday night at 900 Mountain Creek Road.

Donte Terry, of Chattanooga, faces a charge of criminal conspiracy to commit robbery. Police believe he set up the robbery at apartment I-115.

Police received the call at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday and were told three people entered the apartment and began looking for valuables. Numerous electronics were taken including a computer, three cell phones and DJ equipment.

Terry had visited the apartment earlier for about 15 minutes, the occupants told police. The robbery took place shortly thereafter, according to police.

The first suspect is a mustached man, 20 to 25 years old and 6 feet, 2 inches tall. He was wearing a red polo-style shirt with a red cap showing a 'W.' He was armed with an assault rifle.

The second suspect is a 5-foot, 10-inch tall woman aged 18 to 20 with hair in short dreadlocks. She was wearing blue jean shorts and carried a small knife.

The third suspect was a man in his 20s with short hair who acted nervous, the victims told police.

Terry's next court date is scheduled for May 9 before General Sessions Judge Bob Moon.
