Allegany County District Judge Edward A. Malloy Jr., sitting in Washington County, found probable cause last Wednesday to move forward with the case against a West Virginia man charged in a Williamsport robbery more than a ear ago, court records say.

Records say charges against Wilbur P. Crampton, 32, of 574 Back Creek Valley Road in Hedgesville, W.Va., were forwarded to Washington County Circuit Court.

Crampton was charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and one count each of theft more than $500, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony or violent crime, carrying a deadly weapon with intent to injure and carrying a concealed deadly weapon, records say.

The charges stem from a robbery at Byers Market at 18 N. Conococheague St. in Williamsport on Jan. 11, 2003. Police said a robber pointed a silver and black handgun at two store clerks and got away with about $1,000.
