POSTED February 11, 2014
The Baltimore Police Department recently arrested two individuals sought in connection with two armed robberies in North Baltimore.
Just after 4:30 am on October 16th, while within the area of Charles and 21st Streets, officers were flagged down by an individual who advised that he was just robbed by two armed individuals who then fled in a Toyota. The victim indicated that the vehicle headed onto Guilford Street.
Additional officers responded, canvassed the area for the vehicle, and in short order located a vehicle matching the description provided by the victim. Officers approached and located 22 year-old Christopher Bracey and 24 year-old Reginald Thomas attempting to hide within the vehicle.
An investigation was conducted and among the items located within the vehicle were .357 and .22 caliber handguns. It was determined that two separate robberies had just occurred, with two separate victims. The victims were transported to the scene and positively identified the suspects as the individuals responsible for the robberies. Mr. Bracey and Mr. Thomas were placed under arrest. Charges include armed robbery, 1st degree assault and handgun possession offenses.
An immediate and thorough response by Baltimore Police patrol officers resulted in the quick apprehension of the suspects and prevention of their potential involvement in any additional crimes that evening.
