The case of accused armed robber James Moore is on its way to Ontario County Court for further proceedings.
Moore, 32, of Rochester, appeared Wednesday morning before Canandaigua City Court Judge Stephen Aronson and waived his right to a preliminary hearing, allowing the violent felony matter to move to the higher court and possible presentation to a county grand jury.
Moore is charged with first-degree robbery. He is accused of entering Canandaigua Jewelry and Coin Exchange, 232 S. Main St., around 11:40 a.m. April 3, presenting himself as a law enforcement officer.
It is alleged Moore took an employee to a back room, placed physical restraints on the employee, displayed a firearm and stole property from the business.
Bail was set at $25,000 cash or $50,000 bond, as requested by Assistant District Attorney Christopher Eaggleston, who said he also understood Assistant Public Defender Kevin Karnyski was going to consent to the release of a vehicle impounded at the time of Moore’s arrest.
