Cen­tre­ville Po­lice iden­tify sus­pect in Dol­lar Gen­eral rob­bery

Record Observer - - News -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Cen­tre­ville Po­lice have iden­ti­fied Michael Cham­ber­lain, 27, with a last known ad­dress of Cen­tre­ville, as the sus­pect in the armed rob­bery Fri­day, June 3, of the Dol­lar Gen­eral Store, 545 Rail­road Ave., Cen­tre­ville.

Po­lice re­sponded to the store at 6:10 p.m. Fri­day for a re­ported armed rob­bery that had just oc­curred. Wit­nesses told po­lice a lone man en­tered the store and shortly there­after grabbed a fe­male em­ployee, threat­ened her with a knife and de­manded she open the cash reg­is­ter, po­lice said. She com­plied, and the man fled the store with an undis­closed amount of cash, got into a wait­ing ve­hi­cle and left the area, po­lice said.

There were at least four cus­tomers in the store when the rob­bery oc­curred as well as mul­ti­ple em­ploy­ees, po­lice said. No in­juries were re­ported.

The Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and Mary­land State Po­lice as­sisted in a search of the area for the sus­pect and ve­hi­cle, but were un­suc­cess­ful.

Cen­tre­ville Po­lice of­fi­cers in­ter­viewed mul­ti­ple wit­nesses and found ev­i­dence that led to the iden­tity of the sus­pect. Of­fi­cer Den­nis Lan­non headed the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Cham­ber­lain was ar­rested at about 11:30 p.m. Fri­day in Milling­ton by the Kent County Sher­iff’s Of­fice on un­re­lated charges and an out­stand­ing war­rant.

In Kent County, he is charged with pos­ses­sion of drugs and para­pher­na­lia, re­sist­ing ar­rest and fourth-de­gree bur­glary.

The out­stand­ing war­rant was for an in­ci­dent that oc­curred May 27 in Queen Anne’s County. In that case, Cham­ber­lain faces mul­ti­ple bur­glary charges, theft and ma­li­cious de­struc­tion of prop­erty.

He is await­ing trail on a March 28 theft case and was pre­vi­ously con­victed of theft.

In Fri­day’s case, Cham­ber­lain is be­ing charged with first- and sec­ond­de­gree as­sault, armed rob­ber y and var­i­ous other crim­i­nal of­fenses, po­lice said. He is be­ing held in the Kent County De­ten­tion Cen­ter.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion in the case is asked to con­tact Lan­non at 410-758-8437.
