CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - One of two teenagers charged in a June 4 robbery at a Chambersburg-area home has waived his preliminary hearing, according to District Justice Gary L. Carter's office.

The hearing of Albert Martinez, 17, of Chambersburg, was scheduled for Friday, but the case will go directly to Franklin County Court for arraignment.

Thomas Johnston, 16, of Chambersburg, also was scheduled for a preliminary hearing Friday, but it has been postponed with no new date set, according to Carter's office.

Both had been charged by Pennsylvania State Police as adults with robbery and related offenses and bail for each had been set at $300,000. Carter's office said bail had been reduced to $100,000 each.

On Friday, a Franklin County Prison spokesman said Johnston had been released and Martinez was still being held.
