In a separate incident in May 2019, three men were arrested and charged for their roles in a series of ATM robberies at different 7-Eleven stores in Montgomery County. Police had been searching for the men since the thefts began months earlier.

Deandre N. Jackson, 27, of Upper Marlboro, Md.; Omar Barnes, 28, of southeast, D.C., and Janarro R. Hewett, 27, were arrested, police said.

Montgomery County police said the men were caught trying to rob a 7-Eleven in White Oak.

While Jackson and Barnes, who were wearing masks, confronted store employees, Hewett stayed inside a blue pickup truck, police said. Hewett then backed the truck over the curb to prepare in ramming the storefront, police said. 

Officers went inside the store to arrest Jackson and Barnes, while Hewett drove away. He was later arrested after he crashed the truck on the Beltway in Prince George’s County, police said.
