A Hagerstown man wanted in the Nov. 15 robbery of the TekFlash computer repair store turned himself in to police and was being held on $125,000 bond Thursday after a bond hearing in Washington County District Court.
Lamont Cortez Hardman, 41, of 321 A N. Locust St., is charged with armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, kidnapping, false imprisonment and theft under $10,000 in the holdup at the business at 61 1/2 E. Franklin St., according to court records.
Hagerstown Police went to TekFlash shortly before noon and interviewed the alleged victim, who said he was working when a man came in and asked him for $125 up front to sell two laptop computers, according to the application for statement of charges. The man had been in the store the previous day to inquire about selling the computers, the document said.
The victim told the man he did not have cash and the man left, although he returned two or three times over the next hour or so, the charging document said.
