A third man charged in the home-invasion robbery of a 67-year-old Tacoma woman pleaded not guilty today in Pierce County Superior Court.

Monaroes Sar, 26, is charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary and unlawful imprisonment. Commissioner Meagan Foley ordered Sar jailed in lieu of $1 million bail.

Prosecutors contend Sar and Jesse Eugene Grimes, 20, entered the home of Gabrele Senn the night of April 17 and held her at gunpoint. They first demanded her bank account information and PIN but were unable to access her money, court records show. They then ransacked her house and tried to make off with a number of items, including a large-screen television, the records state.

Senn managed to summon police with a hang-up 911 call, and they arrested Grimes near her house. Sar fled but was arrested last week in Oregon.

Also charged in the case is Bobby Ray McKinney, 26, who is the son of one of Senn’s good friends. Prosecutors allege he set up the robbery.

McKinney and Grimes also have pleaded not guilty to robbery, burglary and unlawful imprisonment.

    25 years minimum for home invasion…….possibly more.

    Hey nutjob, spew your garbage elsewhere, seriously

    pajrnjam – Are you suggesting that 25 years in prision is too long a sentence for home invasion? If so, I’d say you are either a criminal or a nutjob yourself.

  4. DEKOVEN says:

    I agree, Crazy. A 25 year prison sentence sounds about right.

    It is like a death in my family,I cry,& cry all I can say is he was not raised that way.He knows rite from wrong! So it is sad but 25 years isn’t enough for what he has done.He has no clue of the lives he himself has sentenced to a life of 25 to life.

    Now for all the people that think for one min that I will suport him in any way you are wrong.I almost wish he was dead instead at least I could just greive and get through it but this way I have to live it over& over.
    Well thank you for your time.
