Jurors find overlooked evidence in coat

A judge has granted a man convicted of armed robbery a new trial because the jury that found him guilty in October also found a wad of cash in his coat during the trial that police and prosecutors overlooked.A money roll totaling $1,300, a rubber glove and a bandage apparently went unnoticed by police, prosecutors and the defense until jurors detected them while examining the garment during deliberations in October.

Circuit Judge Theresa M. Adams granted the defense motion Wednesday for a new trial in Frederick at what was to have been Moses M. Streete’s sentencing hearing. She ordered Streete held without bail.

“You would think with all the law enforcement people that had been involved with the case that everything would have been gone over with a fine-toothed comb – and then that fine-toothed comb would have had another fine-toothed comb going over it,” said Christine Bowersox, one of the jurors in Streete’s trial.
