Washington County District Court Judge R. Noel Spence, during a preliminary hearing Wednesday, found probable cause to send to Circuit Court an armed robbery case against a Hagerstown man.

Police allege Eugene Russell Lattisaw was involved in a robbery on Aug. 21 at Sellmore Industries at 651 N. Prospect St.

Police said two men, one with a handgun, entered the business and demanded money. The man holding the handgun, who was not identified in police documents, pointed the handgun at three Sellmore Industries employees, police said. Police said less than $500 was taken from the from cash drawers.

The case against Lattisaw, 20, whose last known address was an apartment at 1925 Belle Haven Drive, Hyattsville, Md., has been forwarded to Washington County Circuit Court, court records say.


Lattisaw is charged with one count of armed robbery, one count of general robbery, three counts of first-degree assault, three counts of second-degree assault, three counts of reckless endangerment, one count of wearing or carrying a handgun, one count of using a handgun in a crime of violence, and one count of theft, records say.

A man employed by Sellmore Industries also was arrested in connection with the robbery.

Anthony Leon Williams, 33, of 13725 Pennsylvania Ave., Trailer 4F, was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

The Hagerstown Police Department said Lattisaw was arrested by Prince George's County Police on Sept. 3, after they responded to a call about someone at an apartment complex with a gun.

Lattisaw remained Wednesday at the Washington County Detention Center on $75,000 bond, a detention center spokesman said.
