The 21-year-old New York man accused of mugging a disabled customer in the parking lot of a Great Barrington marijuana dispensary has been ordered held without bail for 120 days. Investigators are still searching for a second suspect.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Shane Adams, 21, of Pine City, N.Y., is being held after a dangerousness hearing Friday in Central Berkshire District Court, according to Great Barrington Police Chief William Walsh.

Adams was previously indicted in 2017 on multiple felony counts and second-degree menacing related to a shooting incident in Elmira, N.Y. In this current case Adams will face charges of unarmed robbery, and assault and battery on a disabled person.

The suspect was arrested on Friday, Nov. 13 when he and another suspect, who remains at large, allegedly pushed over and robbed a disabled man who was walking with crutches as he left Theory Wellness. The duo stole a small amount of marijuana that the man had just purchased.

The victim’s wife, who was in the parking lot at the time, managed to get the license plate number or the vehicle the two men fled in.
Chief  Walsh said that Officers Samuel Stolzar and Tim Ullrich responded to the incident and are the lead investigators in the case. After a collaborative investigation involving the New York State Police in Claverack, Stolzar obtained an arrest warrant for Adams that Friday night, and shortly thereafter New York State Police took him, into custody. 

Police are still looking for information on the second suspect.
