Centralia Man Who Allegedly Threatened Clerk at Casey's Store Faces Criminal Trespass and Disorderly Conduct ChargesA 56-year-old Centralia man who allegedly threatened a clerk at the Casey's Store on East Noleman in Centralia on Saturday has been formally charged in Marion County Court with criminal trespass to property and disorderly conduct.
Bond for Ricardo Roberson of North Elm Street was set at $10,000.
Centralia Police say Roberson was asked to leave the store for creating a problem. A short time later he returned, stating he had a gun and a knife and would whack the clerk for trying to make him leave. The clerk said he became fearful of Roberson because the store had been robbed at gunpoint numerous times and he was afraid Roberson was actually armed, was acting belligerent and talking crazy.
Police located Roberson a short time later and took him into custody. It was determined that Roberson did not have a weapon on his person, but was carrying a bag with him.
