Ross is currently charged with six counts related to a series of robberies, but is facing additional charges. Police are accusing him of 10 robberies that occurred in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley.

He was arrested on Friday, Aug. 19 following three robberies that occurred in a 15-minute period.

The preliminary hearing for Ross was set for Oct. 5. His bail remains at $60,000.
