Men Reportedly Attempt Robbery, Fight Each Other
Police say that four suspects fought with each other in the parking lot after they were locked out of the Glen Burnie Royal Farms store by the clerks they were attempting to rob.
Four men, three of whom reside in Annapolis, began fighting in the parking lot of a Glen Burnie Royal Farms they were attempting to rob early Monday morning after the clerks locked one of the men out of the store, according to a police press release.
Police charged the following men with robbery, theft under $1,000, second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and destruction of property:
- Joseph A. Brown, 25, of the 1100 block of Madison Street in Annapolis
- Joshua D. Carey, 20, of the 8200 block of Waterford Road in Pasadena
- Lorenzo C. Martin, 26, of the 900 block of Pondswood Road in Annapolis
- Gregory A. Wells, 25, of the 400 block of Oaklawn Avenue in Annapolis
According to the press release, officers responded at 3:48 a.m. Monday to the Royal Farms store located at 200 Oak Manor Drive in Glen Burnie for a reported fight. When officers arrived, they found several people fighting in the parking lot.
After separating the people fighting, officers spoke with the clerk who said that at least one man had entered the store and physically pulled the clerk across the counter in an attempt to pull him outside. Police said the man was trying to pull the clerk outside so the other men could enter the store.
Clerks then fought with the man and eventually locked him outside the store. Police said an investigation revealed that the four men arrived together in a vehicle and began fighting each other after the man was locked out.
