WARREN — Antonio Hall, 30, of Detroit was arraigned in 37th District Court on May 25, charged with armed robbery and the attempted unarmed robbery of two Warren 7-Eleven stores.

The alleged armed robbery took place on May 16. Warren police reported that the clerk at a local 7-Eleven said an unknown man wearing a mask that partially concealed his face walked behind the front counter toward the cash registers and cigarettes. The suspect allegedly had a handgun and opened the cash register, took various amounts of cash then fled the scene.

According to police, there was an attempted unarmed robbery at a different 7-Eleven location in Warren on May 21.  The man entered the store, reportedly walked behind the counter, and demanded the clerk open the cash register. When the register couldn’t be opened, the suspect quickly left on foot.

Hall was arrested on May 23 after Warren police observed him near his Detroit residence.  He was taken into custody without incident, according to police.

Hall is also a suspect in a May 14 robbery at a St. Clair Shores 7-Eleven.

Police said Hall does not have an extensive criminal history or previous violent crime convictions.

At the arraignment in Warren, Judge Steve Bieda set bond at a total of $1 million cash or surety only — $500,000 for each case. Hall faces armed robbery and weapons charges in the first case. Armed robbery is punishable up to life in prison. In the second case, Hall was charged with attempted unarmed robbery, which is a five-year felony. The judge advised that if Hall posts bond, he cannot have contact with either 7-Eleven store and must surrender all firearms.

Hall entered a plea of not guilty and remained in the Macomb County Jail at press time, awaiting a June 8 probable cause conference before Judge John Chmura in 37th District Court in Warren.

“I am grateful that the Prosecutor’s Office issued appropriate charges and pleased that the court issued a significant bond which helps ensure that Mr. Hall will stay behind bars pending his next court date,” Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said in a press release.

Hall’s attorney of record, Kendall Saillor, was not available for comment by the press deadline.
