Detectives Apprehend Bank Robbery Suspect

DETECTIVES APPREHEND BANK ROBBERY SUSPECT: On February 25, detectives assigned to the CCSO Criminal Investigations Division, with the assistance of officers assigned to COPS and the Southern Maryland Intelligence Center (SMIC), were conducting surveillance at various banks in the county due to recent bank robberies. At approximately 1:42 p.m., investigators observed a man run from the BB&T Bank at 2140 Old Washington Road in Waldorf and get into a Toyota Camry which was parked nearby. Suspecting a robbery had just occurred, the detectives attempted to block the vehicle in, but the driver struck the detective’s car, disabling it. Two suspects bailed out of the vehicle and fled. The detectives apprehended one suspect, but the second suspect escaped. Simultaneously, 911 received calls from the bank that they had just been robbed. According to bank employees, a lone male entered the bank and passed a note to the teller demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled.

Tysean Deonta Daughtry, 21, of Washington, D.C. was charged with robbery, assault and reckless endangerment. Based on evidence detectives recovered, CCSO investigators linked Daughtry to a recent bank robbery that occurred in Berwyn Heights, MD. They notified Prince George’s County detectives who subsequently charged Daughtry in connection with the Berwyn Heights case. Detectives have tentatively identified the second suspect. Det. Hemsley is investigating.
