A Queens County man police say tried to rob a Bridgewater pharmacy is free on bail and his case is in front of a judge again next month.

Timothy Daniel Moore, 29, of Charleston is charged with theft, disguise with intent, breaching an undertaking and refusing the breathalyser.

Moore was released on a recognizance secured by $1,500 worth of Riversdale, Queens County woodlot property, court heard July 31. He'll be on house arrest (with some exceptions) at his mother's place in Charleston as part of his release conditions.

Moore's also to stay away from the Bridgewater Guardian Pharmacy off Glen Allan Drive.

The case returns to a Bridgewater court in September as the matter proceeds through the legal system.

The Bridgewater Police Service told LighthouseNOW they responded to an alarm activation around 10 a.m., July 28, at the pharmacy, located inside the South Shore Medical Arts Building. The police tweeted that they responded to an "attempted robbery."

The multi-floor building on Bridgewater's east side houses doctor's offices and other businesses. The Guardian Pharmacy is on the main level.

Law enforcement said a suspect fled into nearby woods. Davis, the Bridgewater police department's service dog, along with other officers, tracked a suspect to a vehicle off Aberdeen Road, a few blocks away.

Police searched a Jeep Grand Cherokee on an apartment building lot for evidence.
