On October 16, 2023, the Frederick Police Department's Major Crimes Unit and Special Response Team executed a search and seizure warrant at a residence in the 5900 block of Jefferson Commons Way, Frederick. The search warrant was related to an ongoing investigation into an armed robbery that occurred in July of this year.
During the search of the residence, detectives discovered an unregistered AR-15 style pistol with two fully loaded magazines in the bedroom of a 16-year-old juvenile suspect. In accordance with Maryland law, the juvenile was arrested and taken to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center for processing and will be charged as an adult. The suspect now faces charges under two Maryland statutes: Possession of a Regulated Firearm by a Minor and Possession of a Firearm without a Serial Number.
The investigation into the armed robbery remains ongoing.
