Malden robbery suspect violates bond conditions
CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A man suspected in the armed robbery of a Malden convenience store has violated the conditions of his bond.
Gerald Maxwell, 26, of Elaine Drive, had been on home confinement after posting $100 bond in magistrate court in January. But prosecutors said he tested positive for a high level of cocaine and was returned to jail.
Kanawha Circuit Judge Charles King set Maxwell's bond again at $50,000, pending indictment. He is being held at South Central Regional Jail. Maxwell returned to the 7-11 on Midland Drive and turned himself in to police who were investigating the robbery. A clerk said he pointed a handgun at him and demanded the cash in the register.
