    A search is underway for a man charged in a Maryland liquor store robbery who left a courthouse as a jury deliberated his case.

    Michael Anderson, 40, was on trial for allegedly robbing the Laurel Park Liquor Store on June 15, 2012. On Tuesday, he left an Upper Marlboro courtroom and disappeared, said authorities.
