The robbery happened around 1:52 p.m. at the Red Roof Inn in the 2100 block of Emmorton Park Road in Edgewood. The sheriff’s office said five adults and a minor reported being robbed at gunpoint in a room.

The alleged robbers knocked on the room’s door and chatted with the victims before showing a gun and demanding their belongings, officials said.

The trio fled with an undisclosed amount of cash as well as credit cards and other items.

Police later found the suspects in a residential area about three miles from the hotel.

Walker was released on his own recognizance; Parson and Hilton were held without bond, the sheriff’s office said.

    Now that the Democrats have the cops taking a knee in defeat across the country, the criminals have become more brazen. Since Baltimore city is cutting police funding the criminals can hide out there after stealing from the counties. It will get worse as it gets closer to the election. I was told that certain areas in Joppa/edgewood has very large concentrations of section 8.

      That’s been happening for years now. Anytime the City tears down their blighted Section 8 housing, they move people to Harford and east Baltimore counties. Its to give them “an opportunity at a better life”….. meanwhile it destroys communities and people who have worked hard and EARNED their way to a nice neighborhood. Mr Johnny O pushed for it and continues to push for it in his district….

    How are these thugs even on the streets right now? Look at the arrest record of the Parson. Arrests for car theft, drugs, guns, etc…… and he’s only 20 years old!!! Can’t imagine what his juvenile record looks like.. glad he’s been “given another chance” as an adult…..
