Westminster, Md (KM) A suspect in an armed robbery in Carroll County was arrested Friday morning in Washington County. State Police say Daniel Merrigan,29, of Hagerstown was taken into custody at his home without incident. He is charged with armed robbery, robbery, 2nd-degree assault and theft in connection with a stick-up on August 3rd at a store in the 3100 block of Baltimore Boulevard in Westminster.
