Jonathan Moore, 34, from Brentwood, was arraigned at Suffolk County Court on Thursday 25 May for robbery and grand larceny.

The robberies took place at two 7-Eleven convenience stores in Islip and Lindenhurst, as well as at the Bolla Market in Brentwood in April and May 2023.

In each case, Moore walked up to the register with the items and asked the clerk to retrieve the product behind the counter, according to the DA’s office.

When the clerk went to retrieve the item, Moore forcibly tore off the register and fled the scene, police said.

During one of the robberies, he allegedly punched a female employee in the face before fleeing with the cash register.

Investigators did not say how much money was stolen.

Suffolk Police arrested Moore on Thursday, May 11 after speaking to numerous witnesses and reviewing surveillance video.

He has another pending criminal case related to a March 2023 robbery at a BP gas station on the Bay Shore, according to prosecutors.

“This defendant allegedly entered a convenience store and gas station and brazenly robbed a cash register,” Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond Tierney said in a statement.

“Thank goodness he was caught so he can no longer terrorize local businesses in Suffolk.”

Moore was charged with the following offences:

  • Two counts of robbery in the second degree (violent felony)
  • Two counts of robbery in the third degree (felony)
  • Fourth Degree Grand Theft (Felony)

After he was arraigned, Moore was ordered to hold on a $500,000 bond. He is due to appear in court again on Tuesday, June 13.
