Group of teens robs Annapolis store of candy, meat sticks and cigars

Annapolis police say a group of about 10 teens converged on a store Thursday and stole $1,000 worth of candy and cigars.

The group entered a store in the 1200 block of Forest Drive at 9:45 a.m. and started taking candy, Slim Jims, cigars and cigarillos, police said. A store employee confronted one of the teens, who wore a white surgical mask and threatened the employee, implying he had a gun, police said.

Police went to the home of 18-year-old Colando Tervell Colbert Jr. and he was charged with armed robbery, theft of less than $1,000, theft of more than $1,000 and false imprisonment. He is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on $6,500 bond.

All told, the group of teens took $800 to $1,000 worth of merchandise from the store, police said.
