Montgomery County Police have arrested three Germantown-area men in connection with an armed robbery which took place in the Silver Spring area earlier this month.
Police have arrested and charged Jeffery Akowuah, 18, of the 13000 block of Pickering Drive in Germantown; Ralph C. May, 19, of the 12300 block of Juniper Blossom Place in Clarksburg; and Jordan T. Smith, 18, of the 12900 block of Falling Water Circle in Germantown.
Each man was charged with Armed Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit Armed Robbery, and Theft stemming from an armed robbery of three adult males which took place at about 7:45 pm on Monday, Feb. 18 in the 2300 block of Westview Drive in Silver Spring, according to police.
