Charles County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marshals Task Force Locate and Arrest Fugitive: On February 21, PFC Rickard of the CCSO’s Warrant Unit, assigned to the U.S. Marshals Task Force Baltimore Group, located Brooke Lynn Edmonds, 27, of La Plata, who was wanted in connection with a robbery and assault that occurred in February of 2021.

On February 5, 2021, a man arrived at an apartment where Edmonds and two other suspects assaulted him by punching and stabbing him, demanded property, and would not allow him to leave. Eventually the victim was able to escape and he went to a hospital to receive medical care. Edmonds was charged with armed robbery, assault, false imprisonment, and theft. She failed to appear in court in December of 2021 for those charges and a bench warrant was issued.

After being located in Baltimore on February 21, Edmonds was arrested and transported to the Charles County Detention Center where she was served her arrest warrant. On February 22, a district court commissioner ordered that Edmonds would be held without bond at the Charles County Detention Center. The Robbery Unit is investigating.
