Suspect's wife accused of driving getaway vehicle

The wife of a man accused in a bungled Odenton food store holdup surrendered to police Thursday, after her husband told detectives she was the driver of the getaway car in that incident and another robbery in Annapolis.

Marcia Marie Hines, 23, of the 8300 block of Catherine Ave. in Pasadena, was being held last night in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on $10,000 bond. She is charged with two counts of armed robbery, police said.


Investigators said she was the driver of a silver Volvo that was to have been the getaway car in the botched holdup of the Super Fresh store in the 1100 block of Annapolis Road Jan. 6. Mrs. Hines' husband, Phillip Christopher Hines, 23, was shot by a police officer inside the store after he charged at the officer yelling "bang, bang," according to court records.

Investigators said Mr. Hines on Friday implicated his wife in the Super Fresh robbery, as well as in the robbery of Morrison's Cafeteria Nov. 22. Mrs. Hines was allegedly the driver of the getaway car in the November robbery, police said.


Also charged in the Morrison's Cafeteria holdup is Jermaine Xavier Miller, 20, of the first block of Tremaine Court in Baltimore County. Mr. Miller is being held in the Arundel detention center in lieu of $20,000 bond.

A Super Fresh employee said she thwarted the robbery when she told an employee with whom she was talking on the phone to call police.

Officers arrived and one man ran into the store while another eluded officers by running into a wooded area. Baltimore County police arrested Mr. Miller outside his home Jan. 13.

nTC Mr. Miller and Mr. Hines also are charged in the Dec. 19 robbery of a Valu Food store in the 400 block of Ritchie Highway in Severna Park.
