Anne Arundel County police have arrested three suspects in a string of fast-food restaurant robberies in Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties in which employees were herded into walk-in freezers and refrigerators.

Mikel Antonio Peterson, 21, whose last known address was in the 4200 block of Rokeby Road in Baltimore; Roy Lee Hines, 28, whose last known address was in the 3900 block of Reisterstown Road in Baltimore; and Passion Lee Moseley, 18, of the 7600 block of Spencer Road in Glen Burnie were charged with illegal possession of a handgun and illegally transporting a handgun on public roads. Peterson and Hines also were charged with armed robbery, use of a handgun in commission of a felony, felony theft and first-degree assault.

Moseley was charged as an accessory to armed robbery.

Peterson was being held at the county Detention Center on $500,000 bail and Hines was being held without bail. Bail information on Moseley was not available.

The three were charged Monday in the Jan. 27 robbery of the McDonald's in the 7900 block of Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd. in Sun Valley. Police said they had closed four more robbery cases in Baltimore and Anne Arundel counties with the arrests.

Anne Arundel County robbery detectives, members of the Special Operations Unit and the Northern District Tactical Patrol Unit were conducting surveillance on a Burger King in the 700 block of Nursery Road shortly before 10 p.m. Monday when they saw two men who matched descriptions of robbers in other cases. A Baltimore County police spokesman said the Police Department there expects to file charges within days.

Meanwhile, Baltimore City detectives said they are investigating at least 15 fast-food robberies in which Peterson and Hines fit the descriptions of the robbers.
