CAMBRIDGE — Police have arrested a Federalsburg woman in connection with an armed robbery on Sunday morning in Cambridge.
Officers from Cambridge Police Department responded the report of a woman using a knife in an armed robbery on Sunday, Nov. 29, at Sailwinds Station on the corner of Maryland Avenue and U.S. Route 50.
CPD Public Information Officer Capt. Justin Todd said the store clerk received a superficial cut to his hand during a struggle behind the counter when 39-year-old Katisha L. Jones of Federalsburg allegedly robbed the store. After Jones allegedly grabbed money from the cash register and fled, police were able to use a description of the suspect provided by the clerk and information from witnesses about the direction of the car the suspect drove away from the scene to locate her.
Officers immediately began a canvas of the area and located a vehicle matching the description in the 200 block of Trenton Street. Upon making contact with the female driver, the officer found she matched the description of the subject who just committed the robbery.
Todd said officers used surveillance footage to identify Jones, who was charged with robbery, first-degree assault, and other related charges. The knife used in the robbery was also located on Jones's person, Todd said. Jones is being held in the Dorchester County Detention Center on no bond.
A passenger in the vehicle was identified as 38-year-old Leroy Yuman IV of Cambridge. Todd said Yuman was found to be in possession of Suboxone and was charged with being in possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
The store clerk did not sustain any serious injury in regards to the robbery other than the cut on his hand, police said.
