3 charged with armed robbery after holdup at pizza takeout

January 22, 2001|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Three Harford County teen-agers were arrested early yesterday after an armed robbery at a Domino's Pizza in Bel Air, state police said.

Police said two employees were closing the store in the 2200 block of Old Emmorton Road about 3:20 a.m. when they were confronted by two men - one armed with a handgun - who demanded money. The employees surrendered about $500 in cash and $1,300 in checks, police said.

After the robbers fled, one employee called police and the other got into his car and followed the robbers' vehicle, which was driven by a third person.

Police said as the teens traveled south on Route 924, they saw they were being followed and the driver turned into the Box Hill North residential complex, where he crashed into a car being driven by an off-duty Baltimore police officer.

The three teens and the officer were uninjured.

Two of the teens fled on foot, but the driver remained at the scene and was detained by the city officer until state police and county sheriff's deputies arrived.

Police said the snow made it easy for officers to follow the teens through the development, where one was captured by a state trooper with a police dog. The other was apprehended by sheriff's deputies.

Police identified the suspects as Marlon Raymond Clark, 18, of the 500 block of Eastview Terrace in Abingdon; Roderick Kent Russell, 18, of the 1700 block of Harbinger Trail in Edgewood; and Mark Von Bollhardt, 18, of the 100 block of Waldon Road in Abingdon. They were charged with armed robbery and first-degree assault and were being held at the county detention center in Bel Air pending a bail hearing, police said.

Police said the handgun used in the robbery was not recovered.
