Prince George’s County Police Department Robbery Unit detectives are actively working to identify and arrest two suspects now linked to three armed robberies in the county in the last week. The suspects are targeting convenience stores. In each case, it’s believed one suspect acts as a lookout while the second suspect commits the robbery. Detectives believe these same suspects are robbing stores in neighboring jurisdictions as well.
This is surveillance video of one of the suspects making a purchase at one of the targeted convenience stores just minutes before that same store was robbed. This video was taken at approximately 6:35 am at the store in the 6300 block of Allentown Road in Temple Hills. The suspect is seen making a purchase and then leaving the store. A few minutes later, a second suspect robs the store. The unmasked suspect seen in this video is wearing clothing that appears to be the same clothing as the suspect who robbed another convenience store a few days earlier in Oxon Hill.
These are the two other robberies in Prince George’s County linked to these same suspects:
*November 28th at 3:00 am – 6100 block of Oxon Hill Road in Oxon Hill
*November 27th at 11:05 pm – 9700 block of Brandywine Road in Clinton
(November 28th) (November 27th)
A handgun was used in all three robberies. The getaway car in two of the robberies is pictured below. It’s a 2003 white Toyota Corolla with DC tags EB7779.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
