Cops snare armed robbers from the hoodLaPlata, (Sept. 5, 2013) — Charles County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested two suspects wanted in connection with four armed robberies that occurred last month.
In each case, the suspects heard about a local party – usually by word of mouth or through social media. They drove to the area of the party, backed their car into spot where they could observe partygoers and targeted people who were wearing expensive clothing. As the victims approached the house, the suspects would get out of their car and, at gun point, steal the victims’ clothing, shoes, wallets, jewelry and cell phones.
Detectives pursued several leads and subsequently identified the suspects. Search warrants were served and detectives recovered stolen items and two guns believed to have been used during the robberies. Thompson and Dyson were charged with multiple counts of armed robbery and are being held at the Charles County Detention Center. Police are continuing their investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Sgt. T. Miner at (301) 609-6481.
