When we last covered 29-year-old Marquis Moultrie, he was finally being brought before a judge to begin to answer for the 2015 robbery of Sam’s Tobacco store. He posted a new $15,000 bond and failed to appear for the next four court dates. His bond company was issued a final forfeiture notice, and this week they were able to track down their bond jumper. Jamie Thomas and his team took Moultrie into custody. He remains jailed in lieu of a new $30,000 bond.
After nearly a 7-year wait, 28-year-old Marquis Moultrie is in the Montgomery County Jail, charged with the 2015 aggravated robbery of Sam’s Discount Tobacco. Police say he forced his way inside while carrying a pistol, injuring the store owner. He threw the register to the ground when he couldn’t get the cables free to flee with it. After fleeing to South Carolina in 2015, he faced new charges and a prison sentence there for pointing and presenting a firearm, petit larceny, assault and battery 1st degree, burglary 1st degree, burglary 2nd degree, grand larceny, probation violation, failure to stop for blue lights and fleeing to evade arrest. He was eventually arrested in South Carolina in September of 2018 on all of those warrants.
