Trial to Begin for Man Accused of Aggravated Robbery of CashMax

Ernest Phillip Hernandez is charged for the aggravated robbery of the CashMax store in the 3100 block of Kemp.  Police say that robbery occurred May 27, 2011.
    A jury is seated for the trial of the man Wichita Falls police believe robbed the CashMax store on Kemp last year.
    The jury trial for 37-year-old Ernest Phillip Hernandez, who's charged with aggravated robbery, is set to begin tomorrow.
    On May 27, 2011, police say Hernandez walked into the CashMax store in the 31-hundred block of Kemp.
    They say he pointed a revolver at the clerk and demanded money from the register.
    Officers say Hernandez took more than $13-hundred from the business, and also took the clerk's wallet containing personal information and cash.
    An arrest affidavit states the clerk recognized Hernandez's voice.
    She says he continually called the business from a restricted number asking if she had any customers in the building.
    Police traced those calls back to Hernandez's home.
    They say they were already looking for him because a Crime Stoppers tipster told them Hernandez was responsible for the crime.
    Hernandez is also charged with another count of aggravated robbery of the Quick-and-Easy Pawn Shop on Kemp, which happened May 3, 2011.
    Police say Hernandez drove a vehicle while another man to committed the robbery.
    The other man was already sentenced.
    Hernandez also charged with theft.
    Prosecutors say Hernandez will only be tried for the aggravated robbery of CashMax at this time.
