Alleged home invaders remain jailed -- along with man shot in invasion

August 13, 2014 

Two men charged in a May 27 home-invasion robbery now live at the Monroe County jail -- along with a man shot during the robbery.

Matthew W. Storm, 24, and Russell T. Kane, 22 were arrested Friday on warrants resulting from a Monroe County Sheriff's Office investigation of the Grassy Key robbery.

Storm was found in Marathon, while Kane was arrested on Little Torch Key. They were booked on multiple felony counts, including aggravated assault and using weapons during a home invasion. Both were in jail Tuesday with no bond allowed.

Robert Moir, 40, told deputies he was shot in the leg during the May 27 robbery by three masked men at his home near mile marker 58. The wound was not life-threatening and Moir refused treatment.

Moir was arrested Aug. 4 after a Sheriff's Office investigation into reports of drug sales from his home. Moir remains in custody on a charge of trafficking in heroin, plus other drug felonies. His bond has been set at $82,000.

At the time of the robbery, Moir said three robbers "forced their way in his home and during a struggle with them, he was shot," Sheriff's information officer Becky Herrin said. Moir "said he ran from the house and another round was fired at him, striking an outside storage trailer."

"More arrests are expected in connection with this crime," Herrin said.
