5 teens are arrested after allegedly robbing a Clinton pharmacy

Five teens were taken into custody and charged with armed robbery by Prince George's County Police Department late in the evening of July 16. They stand accused of having robbed a Clinton pharmacy located at 8000 Branch Avenue earlier that evening.

Police officers were first dispatched to the pharmacy after reports came flooding in that several individuals were attempting to rob that store. They then apparently watched as the suspects got back in their cars and sped away from the crime scene.

The suspects then allegedly led police on a high-speed chase through Clinton until they ultimately crashed their vehicle along the Georgia Avenue exit near the Beltway in Silver Spring. It's then that all of the car's occupants were taken into police custody.

Police have identified the robbery suspects as four males and one female. The former range in age from 17 on up to 19. It appears that all but the female defendant will be charged as adults.

Robbery in itself is a particularly serious crime. When a weapon is used in the commission of it, then the offense becomes an aggravated charge. It's illegal for someone who commits a crime to flee on foot or by car to evade police. Anyone convicted of these crimes has the potential of being sentenced to a significant amount of time in prison, even if they're young adults.

A criminal record can make it difficult for you to acquire a job, which can make it hard for you to be able to pay your bills. Depending on the nature of your conviction, you may be unable to obtain certain professional licenses or custody of your kids, hold public office, possess weapons or qualify for student loans.

If you're facing charges yourself, then a criminal defense attorney can advise you of ways that adverse information on your permanent record can impact your life here in Maryland and what you can do about it.
