Police Investigate Germantown Pharmacy Robbery, Ask for Help Identifying Suspect

The Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD) asks for the public’s help in identifying a suspect as detectives investigate a Sept. 2 robbery of a Germantown pharmacy.

Officers responded to a reported robbery at the pharmacy on the 19000 block of Frederick Road around 10 a.m. that day, police said in a release Monday. According to MCPD, two suspects jumped a counter and one fled with prescription medication, and also left a sneaker behind. Police described the suspect as a Black male around 20 years old, of thin build and standing about 5-feet-10-inches to 6-feet tall. The police department released surveillance video and asks for help identifying him.

The second suspect was detained by employees at the pharmacy, police said. Ralph Christopher May, 22, of Clarksburg was arrested and made statements to detectives admitting his involvement in the robbery, MCPD said. He is charged with robbery and held without bond.

MCPD asks anyone with information to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070.
