February 08, 2006

A 42-year-old man was charged Monday in the weekend armed robbery of Oak Ridge Liquors, police said.

Albert Cameron Moore, of no fixed address, was charged with robbery, armed robbery, theft under $500, three counts of reckless endangerment, three counts of first-degree assault and two counts of false imprisonment Monday, police said.

Moore was being held on $300,000 bond at the Washington County Detention Center.

Oak Ridge Liquors, at 18208 W. Oak Ridge Drive, reported a robbery Saturday at 11:09 a.m. Police said deputies arrived within minutes and saw the alleged robber running toward Oak Ridge Apartments. The robber allegedly showed what appeared to be a handgun when he went into the store, ordering two customers and a clerk there to the ground, police said.

The robber allegedly said, "'This is a robbery. I want all the cash,'" according to charging documents. He allegedly dropped a pack of cigarettes at the store, documents state.

After searching the area, deputies couldn't find the man, but later traced him to Oak Ridge Apartments after learning from store clerks that he had tried to cash a check at the liquor store a couple of days before the robbery.

A search and seizure warrant was executed Monday at an Oak Ridge apartment, but Moore was not found there. He was found later that day admitted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Cumberland, Md.
