Two Harford County men were arrested Monday afternoon after one stole more than $10,000 in medications from the Finksburg Pharmacy while the other waited in a nearby car, police say.
The two were caught after an off-duty officer from Baltimore County Police spotted the alleged robber fleeing the business.
"Carroll County has an awful lot of police officers from other jurisdictions that choose to live here," Sheriff Jim DeWees said in a statement. "They care about this county and don't hesitate to get involved in keeping it safe. This is a prime example how wonderful this works in Carroll."
Michael D'Angelo Vicarini, 31, of Fallston, is charged with conspiracy to commit theft, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and three counts related to drug possession, according to a Carroll County Sheriff's Office news release.
Louis Anthony Vicarini Jr., 34, also of Fallston, is charged with theft, armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, according to the Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responded to the Finksburg Pharmacy on Suffolk Road about 4:40 p.m. Monday for a report of an armed robbery and were informed by a dispatcher that the suspect had run across Md. 140 to get into a waiting vehicle, according to the release.
Police identified Michael Vicarini as the driver of the vehicle and Louis Vicarini as the passenger.
An off-duty Baltimore County Police officer who observed the man fleeing called the Carroll County Emergency Communications Center and provided additional information about the suspects and car, according to the release.
Sheriff's deputies and a Baltimore Environmental Police officer pursued the vehicle and caught up near the Baltimore County line on Md. 140, according to the release.
A weapon matching the one described by witnesses and prescription medications were recovered, police said.
