February 04, 1994

Three young men and a 17-year-old youth, all from Annapolis, were charged with robbing two men at gunpoint of their jackets and money in Pioneer City Wednesday night.

According to the police report, Dante Thomas, 21, and James Thomas Cash, 20, were standing outside a home in the 8400 block of Pioneer Drive at 8:38 p.m. when four young men pulled up in a silver Subaru. Three got out of the car and demanded the victims' jackets and cash.

Mr. Cash and Mr. Thomas gave their jackets and money to the robbers, two of whom had handguns.

As the car sped away, the victims got into another car and gave chase, but lost sight of them on Quarterfield Road. The pair stopped and called police, who later caught the Subaru on Ritchie Highway near Route 50.

John Edward Spriggs, 17, of the 700 block of Newtowne Drive, was charged as an adult with armed robbery, police said. Also charged with armed robbery were DeMarrow Antjuan Williams, 18, of the 700 block of Newtowne Drive; Michael Dewayne Hall Jr., 19, of the 400 block of Hillsmere Drive; and Tramond Mobray, 19, of the 700 block of Newtowne Drive, police said.

Police said they found jackets that belonged to the victims and a starter pistol inside the Subaru.
