Armed Robbery – 201700005095 – 700 block of Giddings Av – 11/29 at 6:51pm:  Employees of the pharmacy reported that a male suspect entered the business and jumped the counter. Once he was behind the counter he pushed one of the female employees and demanded drugs.  A second suspect entered the pharmacy and pointed a gun at a second female employee also demanding drugs. Both suspects were wearing masks.  They took money and drugs, exited the business, and fled in a vehicle.  The employees alerted their alarm company and as officers were responding the alarm company was able to provide information about the location of the suspects.  Officers located the suspects’ unoccupied vehicle in the 1300 block of Blue Grass Way in Gambrills. K-9 was called in to assist and with the assistance of Anne Arundel County Police, Anne Arundel County Sheriffs and Maryland State Police one of the suspects was located and arrested.  Arthur Prince, 19, of Laurel was charged with armed robbery and eight other criminal charges related to the robbery.  He is being held without bond at the Jennifer Road Detention Center.

No Shave November
Annapolis officers are retiring their razors and putting on polish during the month of November to support those touched by cancer.  Chief Scott Baker has authorized officers and employees to let their hair grow or paint their fingernails blue in a way not normally permitted by our regulations.  Participants donated at least $30 to the Rev. Callie Johnson Matthews Scholarship Fund, an Annapolis based charity.  Employees not growing beards and the public are also encouraged to donate money to this important cause.  Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so directly to the Rev. Callie Johnson Matthews Scholarship Fund through this link
