Bronx Man Charged With Armed Robbery of Bodega Is Freed But 10 Blocks Away in SDNY

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY MAG COURT Exclusive, Feb 3 – The gun-point robbery of a deli / bodega on East 180th Street in The Bronx gave rise to a lengthy bail hearing on February 3, 2023 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Jennifer E. Willis.

Inner City Press was there until the 7:30 pm end, when an order to release the defendant once he obtains the signatures of three co-signers on a $75,000 personal recognizance bond. 

  NYPD Detective Matthew Lombardo sat next to Assistant US Attorney Brandon Thompson, who began by saying that release to the apartment right across 180th Street, where the defendant had been living, would not be acceptable.

 He added that residence further away might be acceptable to the US Attorney's Office.

  Beyond the robbery of the 180th Street store, which was caught on video, Thompson referred to previous armed robberies which the Bronx District Attorney had charged and then dismissed - due, he said, to witnesses being too afraid to testify.

  Judge Willis said this information could not be relied on, and that on the particular offense conduct in the complaint, the defendant could be released but must stay at least ten blocks away from the bodega.
