GREENWICH - A motivational speaker accused of using teens to carry out a string of armed robberies appeared in court Tuesday.

Police say Greg Jetter was linked to the McCree Foundation, which claimed to help troubled youth.

Jetter, 48, instead conned the youths into carrying out a spree of armed robberies from Greenwich to Stratford, according to police.

Jetter is being held on $250,000 bond and is due back in court next month.
