RVC Detectives Arrest Duo for 2011 Gunpoint Robbery

Suspects face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

An investigation from detectives at the Rockville Centre Police Department has resulted in the arrests of two suspects for a 2011 gunpoint robbery on N. Centre Avenue.

Police said that at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Sept. 23, two suspects, later identified as Taaj Cox and Justin Mayers, robbed four victims at gunpoint in front of 100 N. Centre Ave.

A semi-automatic handgun was held to one of the victim's faces and property was demanded, police said. The property stolen included numerous credit/debit cards, cash, personal identifications, cell phones, and keys.

After a lengthy investigation, Cox was arrested on June 6 in front of 30 Old Mill Court in Rockville Centre. Detectives eventually located and arrested Justin Mayers in Moscow, Pa., on Oct. 25.

Both defendants were charged with robbery in the first degree and, if convicted, could face up to 20 years in prison.

All the more reason I'm out of RVC. It's not the town it used to be. Hoodlums and vagrants. I left several years ago and moved up the Penninsula BLVD to the 5 towns. I have not looked back since. While I love the restaurants in RVC and do business there, it's no place to live. The 5 towns folks are used to a more pleasant and civilized lifestyle. Note, Crime is not just happening on "old mill court'. Remember those Drunkards that beat up the man on Roxen Road. Crime in RVC is an epidemic. Time to react and get out while you can. Remember, Roosevelt was a beautiful town not so long ago, as was Baldwin. Time to get out.

@That RVC guy: The information was just released by the RVCPD last night. As soon as they gave us the info, we posted it. Another release from the RVCPD will be posted Monday at 11 a.m. in regards to the department's gang-related initiative that launched in 2010. -- Matthew Hogan Associate Regional Editor Nassau County

Hey Matt, didnt mean to imply it was the Patch. I'm aware that you rely on what the RVCPD gives you. There is increasing signs that the drug dealing and crime associated with old Mill COurt is spreading to other parts of the village. Some of us are wondering just how on top of it the Town is. Thanks for keeping us informed.

I deliver for a local Rockville Center restaurant and that area, I agree, is the most racially diverse area of Rockville Center. However, I believe it is unfair to the town of rvc to be pictured as "hoodlums and vagrants." I will argue though that the integrity of RVC has not been tarnished, and I believe it has some of the nicest homes and properties on the south shore. There are many beautiful, well maintained parks and the school systems are ranked #22 in the nation according to usnews.com (http://www.usnews.com/education/best-high-schools/new-york/districts/rockville-centre-union-free-school-district/south-side-high-school-14024). To allow 2 incidents to tarnish a reputation is preposterous. As far as the sentencing goes, I hope these men a fair and equal sentence. 20 years is far too much for an armed robbery, but that is another argument in itself.

@joe Franzese - if you really deliver food in OMC (you will soon find out the hard way) how many " hoodlums" live over . If you read the newspapers or websites, there are weekly reports of crime stemming from OMC. What are the 2 incidents you are referring too? And your 20 yrs for robbery comment? Where do I begin with that one? 20 yrs for armed robbery Is NOT enough!! Especially when ms rice offers probation and a drug program instead of jail time. I'm guessing by the time of your post that your ability to post an intelligent comment was impaired by capt jack...
