Man charged with attempted robbery

A Carlisle man has been charged with robbery after police say he “made shooting motions with his fingers” at employees of the F&M Trust in the 700 block of East High Street on Wednesday.

Carl Russell Stone, 61, yelled “don’t shut the door, give me all your money” to a teller who was leaving, Carlisle Police said. The teller went back inside and locked the door.

Stone then went to the front of the bank and made the shooting gestures to the teller and a co-worker, police said.

He was spotted by a Carlisle police officer, who took him into custody with assistance from State Police at Carlisle and North Middleton Township Police.

Stone was charged with robbery—demanding money from a financial institution, according to court documents. He was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Michael Sanderson on Thursday morning, and bail was set at $50,000 cash, which he was unable to post.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sept. 25 in front of Magisterial District Judge Jonathan R. Birbeck.

A Harrisburg man faces charges after police say he burglarized a Gulf gas station and convenience store in South Middleton Township on Sunday morning and stole an ATM and a work van.

Ricky Lamont Green, 39, and another, unknown person used force to enter the store at about 2 a.m., State Police at Carlisle said. Once inside, they used power tools to attempt to open an ATM machine, but were unsuccessful.

They then stole a work van parked in the More Than Pro parking lot across the street and put the ATM into it, police said. They went to Harrisburg.

Green was found near the van and ATM and with multiple items used during the burglary, police said. All of the money in the ATM was recovered.

He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Kathryn H. Silcox and confined to Cumberland County Prison, unable to post $150,000 monetary bail, according to court documents. He was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, two counts of theft by unlawful taking and a related conspiracy charge, receiving stolen property, and possessing an instrument of crime with intent.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Sept. 25 in front of Magisterial District Judge Susan K. Day.
