Police said Thompson has been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit theft under $1,000, theft under $1,000, second-degree assault, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, robbery, and armed robbery.

Sheriff's Office detectives are following up on leads to identify the female suspect. Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Murray at 410-386-2900.
