Man Charged With Luxury Store Robberies With Just Convicted Spencer Is Freed on $15K Bond

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, April 15-  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on April 15, a detention or release proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang on a 24 year old man charged with Hobbs Act robbery of luxury stores, including with recently convicted Eric Spencer.

  Inner City Press covers the SDNY Magistrates Court as it has The Bronx, sometimes alone in the gallery, as it was on April 15.

  The defendant was described by the AUSA was robbing a da Vinci store, and a Rio Rio. No guns, however, were used. There was a pushing in and a guard who said he was terrified.

  The AUSA said that robberies could be coordinated from home incarceration. After a break, Judge Wang ordered release on $15,000 bond with Pre Trial Services to search the defendant's phone. (The Pre Trial Services representative said this might raise search and seizure issues).

     The case, still under seal as the proceeding ended, is US v. Garcia, 22-mj-3306 (Wang)
