Four young men are facing felony robbery and other charges in separate incidents after their arrests by Howard County police over the weekend.
Three Columbia teens — Andy Lymonne Jackson Connely, 18, of the 5700 block Stevens Forest Road; Stephon Charles Diggs, 19, of the 5900 block Millrace Court; and Dominick Antonio Green, 18, of the 5400 block Endicott Lane — are charged in the case of a Sept. 23 home invasion robbery in the 5900 block of Turnabout Lane in Columbia.
According to police, the robbery victims said that three men entered through a unlocked front door at 11 p.m. With two armed with guns and the third with a knife, police say, they stole a laptop computer, two cell phones, cash and other valuables.
Police arrested Connely, Diggs and Freen after they obtained warrants, though police said Connely tried to flee on foot at the Columbia Crossing shopping center. Each is charged with armed robbery, handgun charges, burglary and theft. Green also faces drug charges.
Also Friday, police arrested Joseph Albert Lough II, 24, of the 8400 block Grove Angle Road in Ellicott City and charged him with robbing KyKy's Hawaiian Ice snowball stand in the 4900 block Montgomery Road twice, on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9, without showing a weapon.
He's charged with robbery, assault and theft.
