A man was arrested Tuesday night as he fled the scene of a robbery at the I-Mart convenience store at 18403 Maugans Ave., according to Maryland State Police.
Craig Alexander, 31, address unknown, was charged with second-degree burglary, theft under $1,000 and giving a false statement to a police officer, Washington County Sheriff's Detective Tim Atwell said.
Alexander was being held on a $50,000 bond, police said.
Officers responding to the store for a robbery call at about 11 p.m. Tuesday saw a man wearing a ski mask inside the store, state police said in a press release. The man saw the officers and fled through a back door of the building, where he was caught without incident, police said.
The investigation was turned over to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, a Maryland State Police spokeswoman said Wednesday morning.
