FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- Police in Frederick say one of the suspects in the smash-and-grab robbery of a downtown jewelry store is in custody.
They announced the arrest Wednesday in Washington of 31-year-old Alonzo Meadows of Fairfax, Va.
District of Columbia police arrested Meadows early Wednesday. Police say Meadows was driving a black pickup truck linked to the robbery of Colonial Jewelers Tuesday afternoon.
Police in Washington are holding Meadows on a fugitive warrant. Investigators in Frederick are searching the truck for evidence that could help them identify two other suspects.
Police say one of the men produced a handgun before they smashed a glass display case and removed more than $150,000 worth of watches. The men sprayed pepper spray or a similar irritant in the store before making their getaway.
