RICHMOND HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

Bond was set Monday afternoon for Richmond Heights School Superintendent Dr. Robert Moore.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Steven Gall set the bond at $10,000.

Moore was arrested along with the district's building and grounds director, Richard Muse, Friday night. Judge Gall set bond for Muse at $5,000.

Both officials have been indicted for demanding money from a company that did business with the district. The State of Ohio charges that Moore, 52, and Muse, 43, threatened to terminate the victim's business arrangement with the district unless they received cash payments. The victim made two payments during the month of February. The second installment was paid Friday. When search warrants were executed Friday evening, $3,400 in cash was recovered.

 When 19 Action News visited the Richmond Heights Board of Education offices Monday their response was unusually curt.

"This is Paul Orlousky from 19 Action News.  Is there someone we can talk to about the Dr. Moore situation?" asks Orlousky.

"We have no comment at this time," says the person on the phone.
