Baltimore County Police Robbery detectives, in a cooperative effort with investigators from the Baltimore Police Department’s Citywide Robbery Unit, Anne Arundel Police Department, and the FBI Baltimore Field Office, announce the arrest of three suspects responsible for a lengthy series of armed commercial robberies across multiple jurisdictions over the last few months.

Baltimore County Police have linked the three suspects to at least 18 armed robberies committed in Baltimore County, beginning with the robbery of GameStop in the 6300 block of York Road, 21212 on November 28. These same suspects have been linked to at least 4 additional armed robberies in Anne Arundel County and at least 54 in Baltimore City, with additional robberies still under investigation.

The narrative is consistent across the majority of the robberies – masked suspects enter the business during the early evening hours wearing unique clothing, display handguns, and steal cash from the store register along with store merchandise.

This string of robberies ended the evening of March 1, 2019, when Baltimore County Robbery Unit detectives responded to a call for an armed robbery at a McDonald’s in the 6000 block of Liberty Road, 21207. Detectives located the suspect vehicle stopped at a gas station just inside Baltimore City in the 2000 block of N. Forest Park Avenue. Detectives approached the vehicle which had stopped at the gas pumps. The driver, Dontrell Glover, and a rear passenger, Milek Rankin, fled the vehicle on foot and, with the aid of K-9 and Aviation, both were apprehended. The third suspect, Marquis Moore, got into the driver seat of the suspect vehicle and fled.

Unmarked police units followed the suspect vehicle into Howard County where they lost sight of it, but eventually located it parked in the 10000 block of Daystar Court, 21044, and with the cooperation of the Howard County Police Department, were able to take the third suspect into custody.

The three suspects are identified as:

  • Dontrell Eric Glover (27) of the 1800 block of W. Saratoga Street, 21223
  • Milek Anton Rankin (25) of the 2500 block of Hollins Street, 21223
  • Marquis Davon Moore (32) of the 100 block of Thomas Guidera Circle, 21229

All three suspects have been charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, and first degree assault, with additional charges pending additional investigation. All three suspects remain held on no bail status following bail review hearings yesterday.

Chief Terrence Sheridan acknowledged the hard work and dedication of members of all of the involved agencies put forth in this large-scale investigation. “When there are crimes committed across jurisdictions it takes serious commitment and cooperation from agencies to bring a successful conclusion to those investigations. That is exactly what we had in this case, which has brought an end to this crime spree and a sense of security back to our communities,” said Chief Sheridan.

Funding for this joint investigation was made possible in part by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention which funds the Maryland Criminal Intelligence Network.

UPDATE (October 3, 2018 10:00 a.m.):

Royal Farm robbery suspectWhile a number of tips were received regarding this armed robber's identity following our original release after he robbed a Royal Farms store in Halethorpe on July 21, none have yielded a positive identification on this suspect. Now he has struck again - at another Royal Farms store in Halethorpe. Police are hoping surveillance images from his most recent crime will finally help to identify this potentially dangerous criminal.

Detectives obtained better images of the armed robber when he struck again on Sunday, September 23. He entered the store at 4308 Washington Boulevard around 5:40 a.m., displayed a firearm to the clerk, and demanded cash. In this case he was caught on camera leaving in a silver crossover type vehicle (pictured below), believed to be an Acura MDX.

This armed robber is described as being a white male, approximately 6 feet tall with a thin build and short dark hair. If you recognize this man or have any information on this robbery or his previous robbery (see original release below) call police at 410-307-2020. Callers may remain anonymous.

The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is currently investigating both robbery cases involving this suspect.

 

Original Release (August 9, 2018 2:04 p.m.):

Baltimore County Police are asking for the public's assistance in identifying the suspect in these surveillance images.

This man, described as a white male about six feet tall with a slender build and short dark hair, entered the Royal Farms store at 4384 Hollins Ferry Road, 21227 on July 21 around 2:38 a.m. He was carrying a long gun and immediately walked right behind the counter to the clerk, taking the entire cash drawer from the register. He was last seen fleeing behind a nearby 7-Eleven store.

Anyone who thinks they recognize this armed robber is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. The Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit is continuing to investigate this incident.
