A Hagerstown man just out of prison and already charged in an armed robbery and an attempted robbery in January was back in Washington County District Court this week for a bond review hearing on charges related to another armed robbery last month.

Troy Antoine Frazier, 50, of 512 W. Church St., was in court Tuesday on charges stemming from a Jan. 6 robbery of the 7-Eleven store on Salem Avenue in Hagerstown.

He already had been charged in two other city incidents, including an armed robbery at Wayne’s Country Store on West Washington Street on Jan. 5 and an attempted holdup of the Motel 6 on Massey Boulevard on Jan. 7, according to court records.

Hagerstown police charged Frazier with armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, theft and several firearm violations in the 7-Eleven case, court records said.

Frazier was released from state prison on Dec. 20 and was on parole until being arrested Jan. 12 for armed robbery, according to the Maryland Division of Correction.


Sean Eric Scott, 41, of no fixed address also has been charged in those three cases, court records said. In addition, Scott was charged in the Dec. 14 robbery of United Petroleum on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Frazier’s record includes a 2006 conviction for distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and a 1988 robbery conviction, Deputy State’s Attorney Steven Kessell told Washington County District Judge Mark D. Thomas.

“You’re not really going anywhere, isn’t that right?” Thomas asked Frazier, who already was jailed on a high bond.

“Correct,” said Frazier, who was on parole at the time the new charges were filed.

Frazier did ask for “a reasonable bond” or home detention so he could receive proper treatment for a heart condition.

Thomas noted that Frazier’s bond was $950,000 on each of the other two cases and set bond at $950,000 for the third robbery charge.

The hearing was held via a closed-circuit television hookup between the Hagerstown courthouse and the Washington County Detention Center.
