I am a lawyer... the issue is whether or not the ELEMENTS of the offense can be proven. Whether it was a storeroom or a storehouse is irrelevant, as long as you can show that the elements of a robbery took place and jurisdiction was established. Also, in a situation like that, even if the charge was dismissed, the State could just turn around and file a new charge based on the robbery of the storeroom.
