UPDATED Sept. 21, 2007 – A sixth man sought in the alleged O.J. Simpson sports memorabilia armed robbery has surrendered in court.
Charles Bruce Ehrlich of Miami was taken into custody in Las Vegas after a brief hearing before a judge who set his bail at $32,000 Friday.
Ehrlich faces the same charges as another defendant — Charles Howard Cashmore — who was arraigned minutes earlier on charges including kidnapping, armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
Police say Cashmore turned himself in and brought memorabilia believed to have been involved in the alleged armed robbery that landed Simpson back in jail this week.

Simpson was released Wednesday after posting $125,000 bail, in connection with 10 felony charges for his alleged robbery of Alfred Beardsley and Bruce Fromong.
The ex-NFL star and several men allegedly entered the hotel room of the two collectors last week, taking items connected with Simpson’s pro football career. At least one of the alleged robbers reportedly had a handgun, and four others have been charged – along with Simpson – with crimes ranging from various conspiracy counts to kidnapping. Cashmore was booked on two felony counts.
Meanwhile, one of the collectors, Alfred Beardsley, has been arrested on a parole violation. The other alleged victim, Bruce Fromong, was recovering from a heart attack at an LA hospital.
