(June 19, 2015) Ocean City police officers arrested and charged Christian Gill, 16, of Hagerstown, Md. as an adult for attempting to rob a group of people with a handgun inside a motel last week.
On June 10, police met with a group of individuals who identified Gill as the person who displayed a handgun and demanded money from the victims. They resisted and the suspect fled to a room inside the Ocean City motel with a number of other people.
Officers were able to determine which room Gill was in, and they ultimately detained five individuals.
A search and seizure was performed in the room where a pellet gun, clothes matching the description of the suspect, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were located, according to the report.
The investigation revealed it was a drug-related robbery and Gill was charged with armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault and theft of less than $1,000.
Gill was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and was initially transferred to the Worcester County Jail on $250,000 bond. After a bond review, he is now being held without bond.
