Alonzo Meadows was brought back to Frederick on Sunday.
One of the suspects in last Tuesday's armed robbery of Colonial Jewelers has been returned to Frederick. Police Lt. Clark Pennington says Alonzo Meadows, 31, of Fairfax, Va., was brought back from Washington DC on Sunday. He was arrested in the Nation's Capital early Wednesday morning of last week.
Lt. Pennington says Meadows went before a judge on Monday, who ordered him held without bond.
Authorities continue to look for the other two suspects in the robbery.
Last Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 5th, three men entered the store at the corner of Market and Patrick Streets. One was armed with a handgun. They smashed a display case, and took some expensive watches. As they were leaving, they sprayed with store with pepper spray, causing irritation for employees and customers who were inside. Ten people were treated for the after-affects of pepper spray, according to Lt. Pennnington, who was interviewed at the scene that day.
After receiving word that one of the suspects, Meadows, may be in the DC area, Metropolitan Police officers apprehended him early Wednesday morning.
In addition, DC officers recovered a black pickup truck that was observed during the robbery at Colonial Jewelers. The vehicle was brought back to Frederick, where investigators obtained a search warrant, and began processing it for evidence.
