Two men are held in robbery at motel

August 31, 1993

Two men were being held in the Howard County Detention Center last night, charged with the armed robbery of another man in a Jessup motel room early yesterday morning.

Donald Wayne Jackson, 30, of the 9500 block of Murkick Road in Laurel, was being held on $150,000 bail. Trevor Michael Butler, 29, of the 8300 block of Pioneer Drive in Severn, was held on $100,000 bond. Police did not identify the victim.

Both men were charged with robbery with a deadly weapon, theft, assault and a handgun violation. They are scheduled for a bond review hearing today in the Howard County District Court in Ellicott City.

Police said the two men visited the victim, an acquaintance, about 4:30 a.m. yesterday at a room in the Cedar Motel in the 8000 block of Washington Blvd. One of the suspects lifted his shirt and displayed a handgun tucked in his waistband, before demanding the victim's $400.

The two men took the money and drove away.

The victim identified the pair after they were stopped by Laurel city police a short time later.
