Cameron Christian Blake – who police said is a Bloods gang member - is also charged with an armed robbery and kidnapping Sept. 9 in the city. He remains in Northampton County Prison under $150,000 bail on the latest charges filed Wednesday.
In an interview with Bethlehem police on Sept. 25, Blake admitted to the holdup. He said he robbed the store because he realized he wouldn’t get paid until after his mother’s birthday and needed to buy her a gift.
He told police that the day after the robbery, he went into Allentown and used the stolen cash to buy his mother a Kindle. He said he used the remaining cash to buy marijuana.
