Detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division have identified and arrested a suspect in connection with two armed robberies. The arrest is the result of investigative and forensics work which began on January 9 when a lone male suspect entered a gas station, produced a firearm, stole the clerk’s cell phone, and grabbed the cash drawer from a cash register. He fled in a vehicle. Detectives developed Jeremiah Terrell Bryant, 24, of Oxon Hill, as a suspect. An arrest and search warrant were obtained and the suspect was located. Evidence linking Bryant to the robbery at the gas station and another robbery at a pizza establishment was recovered, including a firearm. Bryant was also linked to another robbery case in a nearby county. Bryant was charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, handgun on person, use of handgun during the commission of a crime, and other related charges. On January 26, a judge ordered Bryant to be held without bond at the Charles County Detention Center. Detectives Wimberly and Beach are investigating.
