3 Men Charged In $300,000 Jewelry Store Robbery

COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — Howard County Police have charged three Baltimore men in a jewelry store robbery last month in which $300,000 in watches was stolen.

Deontaye Harvey, 20, Gary Braxton Jr., 25, and Aaron Pratt, 19, were arrested over the weekend. All three have been charged with armed robbery and other offenses.

The robbery took place March 30 at Edward Arthur Jewelers in Columbia. Employees said three men, one with a handgun, entered the store and demanded jewelry. No one was injured.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspects and a citizen who recognized the men notified police. Officers say that person will get a reward.
