Teen arrested for armed robbery at Ocean City motel

(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.
