Bond denied for man accused of jewelry heist in downtown Charleston

Bond was denied for a 34-year-old man accused in a downtown Charleston jewelry heist where close than a million dollars worth of merchandise was stolen. 

Aquabeus Demond Moore of Riverdale, Ga. was denied bond on an armed robbery charge on Friday. 

Moore was charged along with 35-year-old Charles Eloys Johnson of San Leandro, Calif. for the the March 4 armed robbery of Demetre Jewelers on 253 King Street. 

CPD officials said both of the suspects are career criminals with one of them having a possible connection to the Lowcountry. 

According to Charleston authorities, the arrests are the result of a collaborative effort between local and federal law enforcement agencies.

Police say the stolen jewelry, valued at $700,000, has yet to be recovered.

Authorities say two male subjects, one armed with a hammer and the other with a gun, robbed Demetre Jewelers at 11:23 a.m. on March 24. 

According to police, one of the suspects ordered an employee to the ground, while the other broke the case and stole Rolex watches.
