Suspects Identified in Bank of America and Cedar Point Federal Credit Union Robberies

On November 9 at 7:25 p.m., officers responded to the Bank of America located in the 700 block of Charles Street in La Plata for the report of a robbery of a citizen. Upon arrival, officers made contact with the victim who reported that, after she had driven up to the ATM machine, a suspect armed with a long gun entered the back seat of her car and demanded money. A second suspect then entered the front passenger seat. The suspects ordered the victim to withdraw money from the ATM and then drive them to a nearby location where they fled. The victim was not injured and notified police immediately. 

On November 11, 2015, at approximately 9:15 p.m., St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office and Charles County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies responded to Cedar Point Federal Credit Union, located at 30330 Three Notch Road in Charlotte Hall, for the report of an armed robbery. While using the ATM, the victim observed two male subjects approach his location. Subsequently, the suspects obtained items of personal property from the victim. While attempting to flee to a local business, the suspects fired a weapon toward the victim. Detectives from the St. Mary’s County Criminal Investigations Division and Crime Lab responded to the scene and assumed the investigation
St. Mary’s and Charles County Sheriff’s Office investigators collaborated to determine the same suspects were responsible for both robberies. The property stolen from both victims was recovered in Washington, DC. The suspects, David Terry “Lucky” Luckett, age 36, of Southeast, Washington, D.C., and Charles Nathaniel Thomas, Jr., age 40, of Southeast, Washington, DC, were positively identified as the suspects in both robberies.

Investigators from St. Mary’s and Charles County, with the assistance of members of the Investigative and Patrol Divisions of the Washington D.C Metropolitan Police Department, as well as the U.S. Marshall’s Service, were able to locate and arrest both suspects for their involvement in both of the related robberies.
