September 30, 1993|By Staff Report

Two suspects were being held on $500,000 bail, and two other suspects were still being sought yesterday in the aftermath of Tuesday's smash-and-grab robbery at a White Marsh Mall jewelry store, Baltimore County police said.

Wade Knight, 28, and Marvin Adams, 27, both of Philadelphia, appeared before a Baltimore County court commissioner yesterday on charges of armed robbery, robbery and auto theft.

They were caught after a wild car and foot chase that led police through Harford and Cecil counties.

Mr. Knight and Mr. Adams are accused of using hammers to smash display cases at the Littman Jewelers store about 4 p.m. Tuesday and then using a stolen car to make their getaway.

Baltimore County police said two other suspects in the robbery are still at large. They escaped by running into woods along Interstate 95 in Harford County.

The robbery at Littman's in White Marsh was the second this year.

County police spokesman E. Jay Miller said police believe there may be a connection between the earlier robbery, Tuesday's robbery and two other similar holdups.

In April, four men, one armed with a handgun, robbed the White Marsh Littman store, also using hammers to smash display cases.

The Littman store in Towson Town Center was robbed in July by men using hammers to smash display cases, and the Best Products store in Towson Marketplace in the 1200 block of Putty Hill Ave. was robbed in a similar fashion Aug. 5.
