Man ordered on home confinement until robbery trial

April 19, 2000

A Westminster man has been ordered to remain on home confinement until his trial on charges stemming from an armed robbery 19 months ago at a New Windsor convenience store.

Justin L. Reed, 20, of the first block of Bond St. surrendered to state police Sunday, court records show.

Police said two masked youths, one with a large knife with a curved blade, stole money and cigarettes from the 7-Eleven store in the 2800 block of Church St. on Sept. 23, 1998.

According to court documents, Reed and a boy, then 16, did not become suspects in the robbery until last month when investigators learned the juvenile had talked about the robbery and knew information about the incident that was never made public.

On March 31, investigators arrested Kevin A. Beall, now 17, of the 300 block of Robins Way and charged him as an adult, court records show. He is being held in lieu of $15,000 bail at the county jail.

On Monday, District Judge JoAnn Ellinghaus-Jones ordered $20,000 bond for Reed and allowed him to continue on home confinement beyond his current commitment after learning he had sought drug treatment before his recent conviction and had cooperated with the state police investigation.
