The Baltimore County Police Department has arrested and charged two men and two juveniles, who have been charged as adults, for their involvement in several robberies targeting Baltimore area business owners. These suspects are responsible for eight robberies in Baltimore County.

“The closure of these cases is a clear example of the work performed by the men and women of the Baltimore County Police Department on a daily basis,” said Baltimore County Police Chief Terrence B. Sheridan.

Starting in September of this year, police began to receive reports from business owners who were followed by the suspect from their places of business to their homes in Baltimore County. The location of each robbery is listed below. 

Date                               Location

9/15/17               1700 block of Yakona Road, 21234
11/7/17               9100 block of Panorama Drive, 21128
11/8/17               8900 block of Talc Drive, 21237
11/16/17             1100 block of Pelham Wood Road, 21234
11/21/17             1700 block Yakona Road, 21234
11/26/17             2300 block of Salem Village Road, 21234
11/27/17             9300 block of Indian Trail Way, 21128
11/27/17             Unit block of Miceli Court, 21234

The same victims were targeted by the suspects on September 15 and November 21. In both incidents, the victims were returning home after closing their restaurant. The suspects approached the victims in front of their home and threatened them with a handgun. One of the victims was able to produce his own weapon during the November 21 robbery, causing the suspects to flee.

During the November 16 robbery at Pelham Wood Road, the suspects did fire several rounds from handguns at one of the victims. Fortunately, neither of the victims were injured during the incident. The suspects did steal money and belongings from the victims before fleeing from the area.  

Just after 4 p.m. on November 27 the suspects approached a victim while the man was standing at his mailbox. The victim was assaulted and suffered serious head injuries. During the robbery, the suspects used the victim’s keys to steal his vehicle. On the same date at 6 p.m., police responded to the unit block of Miceli Court, 21234 for an armed robbery. The victims told police that they were approached by several suspects holding handguns, after returning home from work. During the robbery, the suspects used keys stolen from the victims to steal two more additional cars. All of the cars stolen during these robberies were later recovered.

Criminal Investigations Bureau detectives received information from investigators from the Towson and Parkville Precincts in addition to information gained from a police contact with the suspects during the time frame of the robberies which led to the identification of the suspects. Detectives worked in a coordinated effort along with the assistance of several units within the Police Department in order to locate evidence connecting the individuals responsible for these violent crimes. Detectives also recovered a handgun and other weapons that were used during the robberies.

According to Colonel Steven M. Hlavach, Commander of the Criminal Investigations Bureau, “These cases were solved due to the collaboration between our precinct personnel, detectives, and support units.”

The suspects have been identified as:

  • Anthony Milton King, Jr., 31, of the 2900 block of Woodland Avenue, 21215. King was arrested on November 27 and charged with two counts each of armed robbery, armed carjacking, robbery, use of a handgun in a crime of violence, first-degree assault, theft and one count of carjacking.
  • Antonio Larry, Jr., 30, of the 1600 block of Riggs Avenue, 21217. Larry was arrested on November 28 and charged with three counts of accessory after the fact, three counts of fraud, and numerous credit card and theft offenses.
  • Brekwan Kareem McFadden, 16, of the 700 block of Wyanoak Avenue, 21218 was arrested on November 27. McFadden has been charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, theft, use of a firearm to commit a crime of violence, and three counts armed carjacking.
  • Melvin Norong Thompson, 17, of the 700 block of Wyanoke Avenue, 21218 was also arrested on November 27. He has been charged with two counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, theft, and three counts of armed carjacking.

King, Larry, and McFadden are currently being held at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections on denied bail status. Thompson was released on his own recognizance. County Police are working with other jurisdictions to determine if this group is responsible for additional robberies in the area.
