Former Laurel Wal-Mart manager charged with staging $400,000 store robbery in which he was shot
A former Wal-Mart assistant manager was indicted on federal charges that he took part in the staged robbery of $400,000 from his Laurel store in 2012, a plot that included having him shot in the arm.
The indictment unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore alleges that Ansar Ali Younis was part of a group that planned the early-morning robbery on Nov. 14, 2012, of a Wal-Mart in the 3500 block of Russet Green East.
As part of the plan, co-conspirator Mohammed Altashy obtained a Plymouth Voyager and at around 4:15 a.m. drove to the store and looked for Younis, who was acting as the night manager, and loudly announced a robbery, the indictment alleges.
He pointed a gun at Younis, demanding he put cash from the Wal-Mart safe into a trash can, then forced Younis at gunpoint out of the store.
