3 Men Accused of Robbing 24 Area Convenience Stores

The trio allegedly held up Royal Farms, 7-Eleven and High's stores in the city and the county.

(UPDATED, 1:14 p.m.)—Three men have been arrested and charged with robbing 24 convenience stores in both Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

The men were arrested following a high-speed pursuit into Baltimore County after robbing two convenience stores in North Baltimore. They were taken into custody in a parking garage at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center in Towson.

"There is no doubt that these three men would have continued victimizing businesses and store employees if our robbery detectives in the County and the City had not used solid police work to put the pieces together, and then relentlessly pursued this case," Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson said in the news release.

Omar Hance, a 31-year-old resident of Better Waverly, and Darrell Blackwell, a 26-year-old Columbia resident, face 11 counts including armed robbery and first degree assault. Willie Vinson, a 24-year-old Cherry Hill resident, faces 12 counts including armed robbery and first-degree assault.

The men are currently being held in the Baltimore City Detention Center.

That was wrong because the baby is just black. He hasn't done anything that would earn him that label. Robbing at gunpoint is something that niggers do. That term means that they are ignorant blights on society with no redeeming value. If you want to call it racism, that's up to you. I call it being sick and tired of the way these pieces of human waste are allowed to cause problems and prey on decent and productive members of society because they feel entitled to whatever they want. The sooner this state allows citizens to carry concealed weapons, the sooner scumbags like this will be forced to think twice about robbing someone. Nothing stops lazy worthless street trash from crime like shooting a few of them in the act. The more they kill each other, the better.

this is pretty sick...i feel like I am living in a third world country! These guys better be locked up for life...I hope that they dont get a plea deal with 10 months probation! now we know why people buy guns and blow these criminals away...What is really sad is that these scum put our lives in danger (if we run into them while they are robbing they might kill us!)-- and they get probation! I work at night from my home near lutherville elementary off of york rd and this guy on sat night was trying to kick down my basement window as i was typing! The cops told me that if they caught him they could not charge him for more than destruction of property! Next time i will wait till he comes in and teach him what the 2nd amendment means...people take justice into their own hands because of this crappy criminal justice system.
