Belmont man arraigned in robbery of Concord Moose Club
A probable cause hearing was set Aug. 15 for Harold L. Williams, 66, of 14 Country View Drive. After he surrendered to police Sunday night, Williams was released on $100,000 personal recognizance bail, with conditions barring him from the lodge and from contact with the alleged robbery victim, and requiring him to remain in the custody of his daughter at all times.
Court documents show the robbery victim said Williams, whom he did not know by name, came into the lodge Sunday morning for coffee and to use the bathroom, as he did most days at the same time for the same thing.
David Charlton told police that the coffee wasn't ready, so Williams asked for a can of Coke and paid for it with a drink ticket. Charlton said Williams went back to his vehicle for cigarettes and when he returned, tried to use the ATM in the club to request an account balance, but the request was declined, according to the receipt he left behind on the bar.
Court documents show Charlton said he was counting a large amount of money, preparing for the day, when the robber, after finishing his drink and cigarette, approached him with a folding knife in his right hand and said: "Put all the money in the bag."
But before Charlton could do so, he said, the man grabbed a handful of money from the bar and left, driving south in a gray station wagon. Charlton later calculated the amount taken was $776.
Court documents show surveillance video of the entire incident enabled patrons and employees to identify Williams and when officers went to his previous address in Loudon, Williams' daughter said her father had stopped by Sunday and told her the Moose Lodge had been robbed.
The court documents show Williams' daughter told police her father was not himself lately.
In court, Williams' daughter told Judge Gerard Boyle the same thing. "He's not thinking well," she said. She said she was taking him from court to Concord Hospital for an evaluation, prompting Boyle to say he would delay issuing a court-ordered evaluation.
