Shootout Charges Prince George's County police have charged four men in connection with a robbery and police shootout last week, and detectives are looking into the possibility that the suspects were involved in several other armed robberies in the county.
The men are charged with robbing a fast-food restaurant in the 8300 block of Annapolis Road, speeding off in a car, then shooting at police officers who chased them. Police returned fire but no one was hit. The men ran away but were quickly apprehended by police. No one was injured in the May 25 incident.
Charged with armed robbery and first-degree assault are Dewey Reginald Wiseman, 24, and Marques Clark, 20, both of Bowie, and Mohamaed L. Kamara, 18, and Zainab Haja Jalloh, 22, both with no fixed address.
Immigration Charge A man arrested Tuesday at a Starbucks in Falls Church has been charged with immigration fraud for allegedly failing to disclose on his application for U.S. citizenship that he had been a member of two terrorist organizations, officials said.
Maher Amin Jaradat, 43, of Falls Church was a member of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Al-Fatah, the military arm of the Palestine Liberation Organization, according to an affidavit filed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The indictment filed against Jaradat was unsealed Tuesday. He faces a detention hearing tomorrow in U.S. District Court in Alexandria.
Bank Robbery Prince William County police are searching for a man who robbed a BB&T Bank in Woodbridge yesterday while wearing yellow dishwashing gloves and flip-flops.
Police said the man, wearing a nylon mask, a gray hooded sweat shirt and blue sweat pants, jumped over the counter and pushed a 55-year-old teller aside, grabbed cash and ran about 12:05 p.m. But as he ran from the bank at 13927 Jefferson Davis Hwy., the robber left one flip-flop behind, police said. A short distance away, police found some of the money covered in ink from a dye pack that was with the cash.
Police think that before he entered the bank, the man went to a Payless Shoe Source nearby and stole the flip-flops.
