The man accused of robbing the Mahoning Valley branch of PNC Bank at Carbon Plaza Mall two weeks ago has opted to refuse a preliminary hearing on the charges.
David Dallas Cunard, 46, of Hazleton, appeared before District Judge Edward Lewis of Jim Thorpe, yesterday for the hearing. He instead waived all the charges to Carbon County Court.
Charges filed against him include robbery, theft by unlawful taking, and receiving stolen property.
He presently remains lodged in the Carbon County Correctional Facility in lieu of $500,000 bail.
