UPDATE: Robbery of Elderly Woman in Town Creek

UPDATE 9-30-14:
Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division executed a search and seizure warrant in reference to this crime at a residence in Charles County, Maryland, belonging to one of the suspects charged with the robbery. Additional property, which had been stolen during the robbery, was recovered from the residence.

Several of the stolen items belonged to the 95 year old victim's late husband and had enormous sentimental value.

"We could never take away what happened to these two innocent victims, but we hope getting important items back for them helps them move forward. Detectives working the case, felt strongly about recovering the property stolen from the 95 year old victim. Some of these items belonged to her husband and could never be replaced. Detectives work hard to close every case assigned to them, however there is a certain amount of extra job satisfaction when suspects like these are put in jail and we can return important personal property to the victims" -- Captain Terry L. Black, Commander, Criminal Investigations Division.
