Original release (March 20):

Baltimore County Police, working in partnership with Baltimore City Police, yesterday arrested a Baltimore man suspected of 49 armed robberies in the city and county.

Stanley Macklin has been arrested in several armed robberies in the city and county.The suspect, Stanley Jerome Macklin, 35, of the 2500 block Francis St., 21217, was dubbed the "khaki pants robber" by detectives because he often wore khakis when committing crimes.

Macklin was arrested without incident at a medical facility in the 2300 block of Garrison Blvd., where he was scheduled to meet with his Parole and Probation officer. BCoPD and BPD have been looking for Macklin since October 27, 2014, when an armed robber hit a 7-Eleven in the city – the first robbery in a string of similar crimes in the city and county. The most recent robbery occurred March 7, 2015.

Macklin is suspected in a total of 49 armed robberies -- 18 in the city and 31 in the county. BPD has charged him with one robbery; BCoPD has a warrant charging him with four robberies. In addition, federal charges are pending. (FBI representatives also attended today's briefing.)

Macklin has targeted small businesses such as gas stations and convenience stores. Most of the Baltimore County cases occurred in Precinct 1/Wilkens, but Macklin’s total crimes cover a broad geographic area.

"It was difficult, but we were up to the challenge," Johnson said, crediting solid police work by robbery detectives from both agencies.

Method of Operation

In each crime, Macklin displayed a revolver and, Batts said, used "fear and intimidation" to rob store clerks. No injuries were reported in any of the robberies. But during a mid-January robbery at a 7-Eleven on Compass Road in Essex, Macklin fired a round into a display when the clerk was not cooperative.

Macklin, who police believe acted alone, disguised himself while committing the crimes.

A break came in March during the investigation of a robbery in Hamilton. Detectives obtained evidence in that case that led to a potential suspect. Using technology and surveillance, BPD and BCoPD detectives built their case.

UPDATE (January 15, 2015):

The suspect is described as a black male, 25 to 35 years-old, 6’00”, 200 to 220 pounds, with a heavy build.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Baltimore County Police Department at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.

Baltimore County Police have identified the man charged in connection with the robbery of a Toys R Us on Putty Hill 21286 as 45-year-old Elbert Darell Crump of the 1600 block of Mussula Road 21286.

Crump has been charged with armed robbery and related charges. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

Police responded to the Toys R Us store at 1:40 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an armed robbery. Multiple police units, including Chief James Johnson who was in the area, began to arrive on the scene within two minutes of the call being dispatched. As the suspect was exiting the store, he encountered police and ran back inside where he hid.

Most of the employees and customers fled the store, but some remained inside, and sheltered in place. The suspect did not take any hostages.

The area around the store was quickly secured, which included closing several stores and area roads. Specialized units, including the Tactical Unit were called to the scene.

At just after 3 p.m., tactical teams made entry into the store and located the suspect hiding in a box. He was taken into custody without incident.

No shots were fired during this incident and there no reports of injuries during the incident itself. One person was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a condition unrelated to the robbery.
