Virginia man indicted on Lighthouse Liquors Armed Robbery

A St. Mary’s County Grand Jury has indicted a Virginia man on several charges stemming from a liquor store robbery in February.

Markeith Devon Wills, 40 of Alexandria, Va., has been charged with Armed Robbery, First Degree Assault and Theft after the facts of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office’s investigation
were presented to the Grand Jury on July 11, 2018.

On the evening of Feb. 13, 2018, St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Officers responded to Lighthouse Liquors in Charlotte Hall for the report of an armed robbery. The investigation was
continued by the Criminal Investigations Division.

Wills entered Lighthouse Liquors and demanded money. A brief struggle ensued between Wills and the victim. Wills was able to flee from the business with an undisclosed amount of cash. The
victim sustained injuries that required immediate medical attention.

Currently, Wills is incarcerated at the Calvert County Detention Center for an unrelated matter.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office thanks the Charles County Sheriff’s Office for its assistance in this matter.
