Guam - The man accused in the EconoMart armed robbery appeared in court today but Jeremy Laitan Cruz's arraignment was continued until next month. During today's proceedings Cruz informed the court he would not be using the court appointed counsel but instead will be retaining the services of defense attorney Howard Trapp. As a result the hearing was continued until March 5.
Cruz, who lives near the store, is accused of robbing the owner at gunpoint and running out.
He is being held on $750,000 cash bail.
