Teen arrested in robbery at Quizno's

An Annapolis teenager was arrested and charged with robbing a city sandwich shop at gunpoint, police said.

Aaron Stephone Butler, 18, of the 700 block of Newtowne Drive is charged with entering Quizno's Subs at 509 S. Cherry Grove Ave. about 5:30 p.m. May 31 wearing a hooded sweat shirt and with a black bandanna covering the lower part of his face. He brandished the handgun and demanded that the employee open the cash register. The employee complied, and the suspect took the money and fled.

With the help of the employee's description, police went to Butler's home about 6 p.m. Wednesday, but he wasn't there. The victim of the robbery called a few minutes later and reported that he had just seen the robber walking in his neighborhood.

Man charged with stealing credit card

An Annapolis man was charged with theft after he was found him in possession of a stolen credit card, police said.

When an officer spotted Mapuol Annie Puolping-Madut, 45, of no fixed address suspiciously checking parked cars about 1:30 p.m. June 1, police said, Puolping-Madut held a piece of paper in his hand and acted as if he were writing something down. He told the inquiring officer that he was taking down the information from a real estate sign because he was looking to rent a house.

The officer pointed out that the house was offered for sale and not rent, and that Puolping-Madut did not have a writing instrument.

An investigation led to the recovery of a credit card with a woman's name on it. She told police that her purse had been stolen from a West Street coffeehouse May 16.

Police said they recovered many items of questionable ownership from Puolping-Madut and were investigating his recent activities.

Dominique Antonio Medley, 27, was pulled over at Amos Garrett Boulevard and West Street about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday for driving erratically.

Typically, his car would have been towed, but he asked the officer to wait until his girlfriend, who was nearby, could come and drive the car from the scene. The officer agreed, and Theresa Ann White, 41, of Spa Road in Annapolis soon arrived. A check of her status revealed that she was wanted by Calvert County on a child-support warrant.

She was arrested, and the car was impounded.
