A man who matched the description of a suspect in two armed robberies at area convenience stores was arrested Tuesday near the site of a third robbery, according to Anne Arundel County Police.
The first robbery occurred at 1:05 a.m. Sunday at the 7-Eleven convenience store in the 3800 block of Mountain Road in Pasadena. An armed man took an undisclosed money from the cash register and fled the scene in a dark-colored, older model, Ford Explorer.
Later that day, at 5:27 p.m., officers were called to Luckie’s convenience store in the 7700 block of Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard in Glen Burnie for a report of a robbery. In that incident, an armed man took money and fled in a black Ford Expedition.
On Tuesday at about 1:53 a.m., police responded to an armed robbery of a 7-Eleven store in the 8900 block of Fort Smallwood Road in Pasadena. In that case, an armed man robbed the store and fled in a black Ford Expedition.
Officers responding to the area were aware of the recent robberies that fit this motive. When they saw a black Ford Expedition traveling near the area where the robbery occurred, they pulled the vehicle over. The SUV's driver matched the description of the suspect in the previous robberies, the department says.
Police said officers found numerous items linking the driver to the 7-Eleven robbery that had just occurred, and investigators found links to the previous two convenience store robberies.
Christopher Glenn Miller, 36, of 9 Disney Avenue, Pasadena, has been charged with armed robbery, robbery, firearm use in commission of a violent felony, false statement to an officer, theft less than $1,000, first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.
