Maryland Independent - - News - By CERONE WHITE cwhite@somd­news.com

Four men have been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with an April armed rob­bery of a White Plains con­ve­nience store.

Nathan Ellsworth Proc­tor, 34, An­thony Tilden Walls, 23, Daevonn Hill, 25, and Corey An­thony Kel­ton, 25, all of Wal­dorf, have been charged in re­la­tion to the al­leged rob­bery.

At about 5 a.m. April 18, Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the Dash In lo­cated at 4705 Crain High­way in White Plains for a re­ported armed rob­bery. Ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments, four sus­pects en­tered the busi­ness, one bran­dish­ing a shot­gun and stole money and mer­chan­dise. One of the men shot a dis­play case and fired a round into the ceil­ing be­fore ex­it­ing. The sus­pects fled in a 2000 Dodge Car­a­van that was found set ablaze at the end of Padgett Road.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion revealed that all sus­pects were wear­ing blue la­tex gloves while their faces were cov­ered with un­known gar­ments. On May 19, po­lice were con­tacted by a cit­i­zen who

ad­vised that they heard Proc­tor and Kel­ton were both al­legedly in­volved in the rob­bery at the Dash In. Fur­ther prob­ing led CCSO to the im­me­di­ate lo­ca­tion of Proc­tor and Kel­ton. Based on ev­i­dence they dis­cov­ered, it was de­ter­mined Proc­tor and Kel­ton were al­legedly in­volved in the rob­bery.

An anony­mous source told po­lice that the other in­di­vid­u­als in­volved in the rob­bery were Walls and Hill. Through a records man­age­ment sys­tem it was found that Walls was cur­rently in­car­cer­ated

at the Charles County De­ten­tion Cen­ter and also had a cell phone stored at the de­ten­tion cen­ter. In speak­ing to Det. Duck­ett and Deputy Gregory, Walls al­legedly ad­mit­ted to be­ing in­volved in the rob­bery. Walls was re­luc­tant in iden­ti­fy­ing the other ac­com­plices, but he even­tu­ally iden­ti­fied the gun­man as “Corey,” the sus­pect with the orange gar­ment over his face as “Rell,” and an­other sus­pect as “Nate.”

Search war­rants were served at the res­i­dence

where the four men re­port­edly lived. Ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments, a search of the res­i­dence and yard revealed sev­eral blue la­tex gloves, con­sis­tent with the ones worn by the sus­pects dur­ing the rob­bery.

Both Proc­tor and Kel­ton were ar­rested. Kel­ton later re­port­edly ad­mit­ted to the shoot­ing dur­ing the rob­bery, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments. Stolen prop­erty included 18 packs of New­port cig­a­rettes, a to­tal value of $128.70, and $230 in cash.
