On Wednesday, June 5, 2019, at 5:20 a.m., deputies from the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Safeway gas pumps on West Dares Beach Road, in Prince Frederick, for the report of an armed robbery.

The adult victim was in the process of pumping gas when he was approached by a man with a handgun. The victim was assaulted, and the suspect attempted to place the victim in handcuffs. The handcuffing of the man was thwarted by a citizen who confronted the man and threatened to call the police. The victim was robbed of his wallet and the suspect fled in a vehicle.

Detectives from the Calvert County Criminal Investigations Bureau assumed the investigation and quickly identified the vehicle involved.

The detectives initiated a multi-jurisdictional search that led to the arrest of the suspect by Maryland Transportation Authority Police as he attempted to cross the Bay Bridge around 1:20 a.m. the following morning.

Calvert County Detectives learned of numerous similar armed robberies occurring throughout the DMV area on June 05, 2019 and contributed their efforts to help identify the suspect in all cases for the surrounding jurisdictions.

The suspect has been identified as Dante D’Anjael Tyler, 53, of Hyattsville, Maryland.

Tyler is in custody and faces numerous charges to include Armed Robbery, Assault in the First Degree, and various felony handgun possession charges.

Anyone who has any further information about these cases is encouraged to call Detective Yates at 410 535 2800 ext. 2151.

      Well since the sex was over, the next thought would probably be to go steal some Colt 45 liquor.

    Typical Prince George’s County trash. What I will do when I pump gas, I watch my surroundings and if I am approached, I will pull the nozzle out of the gas cap and spray the person with the gas and chase them with my bic liter and need be ignite them. I would rather see them burn for their misdeeds and I may try to extinguish them by urinating on them if they are lucky.

      I like your style kid.

      I like that idea.

      In fact, it should be offered along with the instructions written on the pumps explaining how to dispense your fuel.

      However, ladies may need some assistance with the extinguishing step – or just let ’em burn.

    Another textbook case for concealed carry permits in Maryland.

    Great job law enforcement. These city goons think that they can come to the country and disrupt our way of life. Catch ’em all and let God sort them out.

    Too bad the victim at the gas station wasn’t packing a nice compact .45 ACP and blast this turd to where he belongs.

    I don’t think that’s what dmv refers to…

    • SBD on June 11, 2019 at 6:02 pm

      Deleware, Maryland Virginia area…they used to call it DelMarVa, it’s all hinged around wonderful (sarcasm) D.C…everything’s an acronym now…I know you already knew that, I just put it there for those that don’t.

    • Charles the 2nd on June 12, 2019 at 4:22 am

      I wondered why I haven’t seen the DELMARVA term in years. Like most millennials who are too lazy to finish a complete word, everyone has shortened it to “DMV.”

      Why are you yelling? If you used proper sentence structure, spelling and punctuation, we would take you more seriously.
