2 teens held in robbery

August 23, 1991

Two Baltimore teen-agers were being held in the Baltimore County jail yesterday after the early morning armed robbery of a fast-food restaurant in Towson and a chase down the Jones Falls Expressway by both county and city police.

About 1:30 a.m., two young men wearing ski masks robbed a Burger King on East Joppa Road near Dulaney Valley Road and escaped with about $500, county police said.

A police lab technician in a unmarked van spotted the getaway car, a stolen 1989 Chevrolet Spectrum, at Dulaney Valley Road and the Baltimore Beltway and pursued it on the Beltway to southbound Interstate 83, where squad cars took up the chase.

At Cold Spring Lane, the car turned west and got as far as the 4300 block of Reisterstown Road, where its occupants jumped out. The driver was struck by a police car before being arrested and was treated at St. Joseph Hospital, police said. He was charged as an adult with assault with intent to murder a city police officer, whose vehicle he allegedly had tried to ram.

The driver, Shields Candido Jones, 17, of the 4500 block of

Hampnett Avenue, and his passenger, Terry Anthony Griffin, 16, of the 2700 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, were both charged as adults with armed robbery, handgun violations and automobile theft.
