Detective Michael Morgan of the Criminal Investigation Division investigated the robbery and was able to identify a possible suspect who was later identified by the clerk as the person who had robbed the business. Before Det. Morgan could apply for criminal charges, officers received a call from the 7-Eleven store early Tuesday morning, 2/10/09, advising the male who had robbed the business was standing outside the establishment. The suspect, identified as Alonzo Joseph Brazzley, age 34 of Queens, NY, was located by officers a short distance away and placed under arrest.
Brazzley was transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center and charged with armed robbery, robbery, 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, and theft less than $500.
