Adams Holdup Suspect Held Without Bail
The person who police say held up a gas station in Adams at knifepoint on Dec. 26 was ordered held without bail after a dangerousness hearing Wednesday.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that 29 year old Jake McInnis of North Adams has been charged with using a knife to rob the Mobil gas station on Howland Avenue of $146 and a pack of cigarettes. McInnis appeared in Northern Berkshire District Court and was ordered by Judge Paul Vrabel to remain at the Berkshire House of Corrections for 120 days, due to his history of convictions, drug dependency and being a potential threat to others.
Police used surveillance camera video from the area to help identify McInnis as the suspect and a warrant was issued for his arrest on charges of armed robbery and armed robbery wearing a mask. He was arrested last Friday night by a Mass. State Trooper who found him walking in the travel lane of I-91.
