UPDATE: Man guilty in 2016 bank robbery in Salisbury
A man was convicted for his involvement in a 2016 bank robbery that yielded over $10,000, in Salisbury.
The Office of the State's Attorney for Wicomico County says on February 28, 26-year-old Richard Moise, of Salisbury, was convicted of 56 counts including five counts of armed robbery and five counts of use of a handgun in the commission of a felony. The charges stem from a robbery that happened in 2016.
On December 9, just before 6:00 PM, five people wearing masks when into the Bank of Delmarva, on Eastern Shore Drive. Two of the individuals were armed at the time of the incident. Moise then collected the money while two other suspects pointed guns towards bank employees. Employees were ordered to the ground and gun point and the suspects tied up three bank tellers with zip ties.
The individuals made off with over $11,000 in cash from the bank and some personal property from employees.
Authorities say the majority of personal items and all of the stolen money were recovered during the investigation.
A sentencing date has not been announced due to a pending pre-sentence investigation.
