Baltimore County Police are investigating four armed robberies in the northwest county corridor as part of a trend.
Police believe the same men are responsible for three Dunkin' Donuts robberies and one Wendy's robbery in Reisterstown and Owings Mills, said Capt. Matthew McElwee, commander of county police's Franklin Precinct No. 3.
The following crimes are being investigated as part of a trend:
- Saturday, Oct. 27: Two men armed with black pistols stole money and employees' wallets from the Dunkin’ Donuts on Main Street in Reisterstown.
- Friday, Oct. 26: A man armed with a black handgun stole money from both registers at Wendy's on Lakeside Boulevard in Owings Mills.
- Monday, Oct. 22: Two suspects, one armed with a knife and one with a gun, stole money from the Dunkin’ Donuts at 9404 Reisterstown Road in Owings Mills.
- Thursday, Oct. 18: A man armed with a gun stole cash from the Dunkin’ Donuts on Common Brook Road in Owings Mills New Town.
Baltimore County Police’s commercial robbery unit is actively investigating these four cases together, McElwee said.
Several previous commercial robberies are still under investigation, including the Sept. 25 robbery of the M&T Bank in Reisterstown.
This is the second commercial robbery trend of the year. Police believe five incidents that occurred in August and September in Reisterstown and Owings Mills are also connected, and those are also still under investigation, McElwee said.
