Two Hagerstown men have been charged in a Friday carjacking in Frederick, Md., that involved the robbery of a courier, according to the Frederick Police Department.

Steven McGloster of Mulberry Avenue and Mark Anthony Owens of the 100 block of East Franklin Street were each charged with robbery, armed robbery, carjacking, armed carjacking, theft plus $1,000 and conspiracy to commit each of the charges, Sgt J.P. Hayer said.

Police said they also have a third suspect in the case.

McGloster was taken into custody at his Hagerstown home about 11 p.m. Friday and Owens was apprehended about 8:30 a.m. Monday at Merkle Inc. in Washington County, according to a Frederick Police Department news release.

Owens, a Merkle employee, allegedly conspired with McGloster to commit the carjacking and robbery of a Merkle courier who was making deliveries in Frederick, the news release said.

The carjacking occurred about 1 p.m. Friday when a man entered the victim's vehicle on North Market Street and forced the driver to go to another location on West Fifth Street, the release said.


The driver was assaulted, property was removed from his vehicle and the items were transferred to a red sport utility vehicle, police said.

Two individuals in the sport utility vehicle fled the scene, police said.

Several officers from the Hagerstown Police Department assisted in the investigation, which led to the recovery of several stolen items, including a large amount of cash that had been taken, police said.
