Robbery suspect withdraws bond motion
WINCHESTER – A Stephens City man accused of robbery withdrew a motion for bond in Frederick County General District Court on Friday.
Micah John Macbeth, 19, was arrested on Aug. 5 by Frederick County sheriff’s deputies. He was charged with grand larceny, robbery, felony destruction of property and driving under a revoked suspension. He’s represented in court by attorney J. David Black.
According to a written statement from the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the 7-Eleven on Aylor Road in Stephens City around 1:30 a.m. for reports of a robbery. A clerk working there told deputies that a suspect had demanded money and displayed a hatchet. The suspect was given an unspecified amount of money and left the store, the clerk remaining unharmed.
During the investigation, the Martin’s supermarket on Elizabeth Drive nearby called into the office about a suspicious person. Speaking with the person, identified as Macbeth, deputies determined that he was the suspect of the 7-Eleven robbery. They also determined that he was suspected of stealing a vehicle from the 200 block of Frederick Town Drive. Authorities located the vehicle later in the 100 block of Halifax Court.
Macbeth is scheduled to appear again in General District Court for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 11.
