DIRTBAG ROUNDUP: Prince George’s County Cops corral gang of District teen armed robbers who knocked over a drugstore and fled
CLINTON, MD. – The alleged thugs rushed into PG County from the District of Columbia, along with one member of the gang from Virginia, and robbed a drug store in Clinton at gunpoint. Perhaps they weren’t aware that the indigenous population of PG County was perfectly capable of robbing local stores themselves and didn’t need any competition from the crime slime from DC.
The Prince George’s County Police Department reports that they arrested five teens who fled from officers after the teens robbed a pharmacy retail store in Clinton at gunpoint.
Officers quickly located the getaway car and attempted a traffic stop. Instead of stopping, the teens fled from officers on a ramp into a wooded area.
Their eventual capture was thanks to several Patrol officers.
The Prince George’s Police Aviation Section was called in for aerial support and maintained visual contact of the fleeing car throughout the pursuit.
A two-minute helicopter surveillance video of the pursuit is shown below.
The suspects are charged with two counts of armed robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit armed robbery. A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 16, 2019, in Upper Marlboro.
