When 41-year-old Jamie Carlos Hernandez set out to rob the Get & Go party store on Hilton Road, he made one fatal error: He didn’t put his Darth Vader mask on soon enough. Surveillance videos captured images of an unmasked Hernandez just before he entered the store on September 13. Police say that Hernandez, who lives near the store, committed the robbery to get money for drugs.
On November 4, Hernandez – who is out on $50,000 bond – waived his right to a preliminary trial in Ferndale 43rd District Court. He was ordered to stand trial in Oakland County Circuit Court and is scheduled to be arraigned before Judge Nanci Grant on November 18.
