A man accused of robbing a man and throwing him into a Dumpster in October made his first appearance in a Wake County courtroom on Tuesday.

Police said David Hoskins robbed Thomas Churchill, 76, behind a Dollar Store on Raleigh Boulevard, threw him in the trash bin and stole his car.

Authorities in North Dakota arrested Hoskins on armed robbery charges. After serving jail time there, he was extradited to Raleigh to face charges there.

Hoskins was being held on a $1 million bond.
