On Sunday morning, Pennsylvania State Police arrested a man for whom the Hagerstown Police Department issued an arrest warrant in the attempted armed robbery of Second Chance Bail Bonds on Friday, Hagerstown Police Sgt. John Lehman said.

Devon Lee Frisby, 20, of 838 W. Washington St., Apartment 2F, in Hagerstown, was arrested by Pennsylvania State Police from the Chambersburg barrack after state police received a tip, Lehman said.

Frisby will be held at the Franklin County Jail until he can be extradited to Maryland, Lehman said. According to a jail official, Frisby had not arrived at the facility as of 9:07 p.m. Sunday.

The arrest warrant Hagerstown Police obtained for Frisby is for armed robbery, assault and use of a handgun in the commission of a felony, according to a news release from the Hagerstown Police Department. Attempted armed robbery is classified as armed robbery for charges, Lehman said.

Hagerstown police said Friday night they were looking for two men who tried to rob the bail-bonds operation at 48 E. Franklin St. on Friday afternoon.


The men, wearing bandannas over their faces and gloves on their hands, entered the business and demanded money, police said.

When an employee replied that there was no money at the business, one man pulled out a silver revolver and said the employee was in the wrong place at the wrong time, police said.

A siren could then be heard in the background and the men ran away without getting any money, police said.

Officers arrived at the scene at about 5:40 p.m. Friday.
