3 Suspects Arrested for Armed Robbery in Olney

Yesterday evening at approximately 8:37 p.m., police responded to the unit block of Castle Garden Court in Olney for the report of an armed robbery and shots fired.

Investigation by officers on scene of the incident revealed that three people were inside a residence in the unit block of Castle Garden Court when they heard a noise coming from the backyard.  When the occupants went to investigate the noise, they realized that three dirt bikes were gone from the yard.  The three occupants exited the front door of the residence and were notified by a neighbor that he had observed three suspects pushing the dirt bikes on a path by the residence.  The three occupants, joined by another friend, followed the path and located the suspects with the dirt bikes.  All three suspects dropped the stolen bikes and fled on foot.  As two of the occupants (victims) were pushing the bikes back to the residence, the three suspects ran towards the two victims.  One of the suspects punched one of the victims in the face while another suspect pointed a handgun in the direction of the victims and shot the gun.  None of the victims were hit and they ran back to the residence to call police.  The suspects were last seen pushing the bikes in the area of MedStar Montgomery Medical Center (18100 block of Prince Philip Drive).

Police units responded to the area and a lookout was placed for the three suspects.  K9 Units and a Maryland State Police helicopter responded to assist in the search for the suspects.  A K9 unit tracked one of the suspects and the suspect was arrested in the area.  This suspect has been identified as Michael Denis Woods, age 23, of the 3600 block of Ely Place in Washington, D.C.   A K9 unit located a pistol in the area of Woods’ apprehension.  Patrol units and detectives located the other two suspects in the area and placed them under arrest.  Those two suspects have been identified as Enoch Nelson, age 18, of an unconfirmed address and Junious Pierae Plummer, age 24, of the 500 block of Foxhall Place Southeast in Washington, D.C.  All three suspects were transported to the Central Processing Unit.

Woods has been charged with attempted second degree murder, first degree assault, armed robbery, wearing a handgun on person, the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, armed robbery, and discharging a gun in an urban area.  Nelson has been charged with two counts of armed robbery and two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery.  Plummer has been charged with two counts of armed robbery, two counts of conspiracy to commit robbery, and second degree assault.

Mugshots of the suspects will be added to the website as they become available.

Police Ask For Help in Identifying Theft from Auto Suspect – Remind Residents to Lock Vehicle Doors

On July 25, police responded to a residence in the 4300 block of Prince Road in Rockville for the report of theft from auto.  Between the hours of 11:30 p.m. on July 24 and 7:00 a.m. on July 25, an unknown suspect(s) rummaged through two unlocked vehicles at the residence and stole cash.

On the same day, police responded to a residence in the 4400 block of Oak Hill Road in Rockville (approximately .7 miles from the first location) for the report of theft from auto.   An unknown suspect had stolen jewelry from an unlocked vehicle during the night hours.

During investigation by 4th District Property Crimes Detectives, a person who lives in the same block as the first victim (4300 block of Prince Road) realized that their home security camera had captured the suspect on video.  In the video, the suspect is attempting to open this resident’s vehicle doors, but is unsuccessful (presumably because the vehicle is locked).  The suspect then enters the unlocked garage and searches the interior of the garage using a flashlight.  The suspect leaves without any items.

Detectives are asking anyone who recognizes this male suspect captured on home video surveillance to please call the 4th District Petty Crime Unit at 240-773-5476.  Callers may remain anonymous.

Montgomery County Police continue to remind people to lock their vehicle doors and garages to prevent theft.
