A 74-year-old man charged with bank robbery last week remained at the Washington County Detention Center Wednesday on two sets of charges, a detention center spokeswoman said.
Washington County District Judge Ralph H. France II set bond Wednesday for Wayne E. Drake, 74, of 7 E. Washington St., Apt. 704, at $250,000 for each set of charges stemming from armed robberies on Jan. 7 and Dec. 11, 2004, according to court records.
The Hagerstown Police Department alleges Drake robbed both businesses with a gold, antique-looking handgun.
Drake was charged with one count each of armed robbery, robbery, use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime, theft more than $500 and handgun on person. He was charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in the incident last Friday at Hagerstown Trust at West Franklin Street and Westside Avenue, according to police and court records.
