Man guilty of driving getaway car Father drove son, accomplice during robbery

July 27, 1993|By Staff Report

A Baltimore man accused of serving as the getaway driver during an armed robbery at an Ellicott City department store pleaded guilty to an accessory charge in Howard Circuit Court yesterday.

Earl Henry Gray Jr., 51, was given a two-year suspended prison sentence and two years' probation after pleading guilty to a charge of accessory after the fact before Judge Dennis Sweeney.

Police said Gray drove his son, Warren Thomas Gray, and another unidentified man to the Caldor department store in the 9200 block of Baltimore National Pike on Dec. 22, 1992. Warren Gray and the other man robbed a store clerk of $225.

Warren Gray's accomplice, known only as "Black," got into the trunk of Earl Gray's 1986 Oldsmobile, police said. Warren Gray stayed at the department store, where he was arrested.

Police said Earl Gray took Black to Security Square Mall in Woodlawn and then drove to Reisterstown Plaza in Baltimore, where he reported the car as stolen. Investigators traced the car to Earl Gray after a Caldor employee got the vehicle's license plate number.

Warren Gray, 21, of Baltimore, is serving an 18-month prison term after pleading guilty to robbery in Circuit Court on July 15.
