Anne Arundel County police arrested two men in the Annapolis Harbour Center parking lot on New Year’s Eve in connection with two commercial robberies, according to a press release.
Police arrested Neil Andrews Fletcher, 46, of the 1900 block of Salisbury Road in Edgewater, and David Aleksander Sade, 47, of the 800 block of Chestnut Tree Drive in Annapolis.
At approximately 2:36 p.m. on Dec. 31, police received report of a robbery at Alexander’s of Annapolis Salon & Spa, located in the 2300 block of Forest Drive in the Festival at Riva shopping center. While officers were on their way to the scene, the spa’s owner was actually following the alleged robbers. Police also learned a man walked into the business, approached the counter and demanded an undisclosed amount of money, according to the release.
The suspect fled the scene in a Ford Explorer—reportedly driven by Sade—and stopped in the parking lot of the Annapolis Harbour Center, according to police. Officers converged on the location and arrested Fletcher and Sade.
Additional investigations revealed that Fletcher matched the description of a suspect who reportedly robbed the Dunkin’ Donuts on Riva Road on Dec. 29, according to police.
The investigation is ongoing and charges are pending.
