Detectives assigned to the Criminal Investigations Division have identified and arrested a man wanted in connection with an armed robbery case. On February 22, a male and a female entered a home improvement store on Jefferson Place in Waldorf. They picked up several items and approached a cashier. The female paid for her items; however, the male concealed merchandise and left the store without paying. He was approached by a loss prevention officer at which time the male displayed a handgun.  The suspect fled in a car with the female. Through investigation, the male suspect was identified as DeShawn Grant, age 35, of no fixed address. An arrest warrant was obtained, and Grant was located. A search warrant was served at the location where Grant was staying, and detectives recovered evidence. Grant was charged with armed robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and other related charges. Grant is currently being held without bond at the Charles County Detention Center. Detective Beach is investigating.
