Man charged in jewelry store robbery


A Baltimore man was arrested and charged Saturday in connection with the July armed robbery of a jewelry store at The Mall in Columbia, police said.

Marvin Montague, 40, of the 2300 block of W. North Avenue in Baltimore was charged with four counts of armed robbery, four counts of robbery, four counts of assault, concealing a deadly weapon, theft and use of a handgun in a violent crime in the July 21 robbery.

Montague was being held without bond at the Howard County Detention Center yesterday pending a bond hearing.

More than $55,000 in jewelry was stolen from Edward Arthur Jewelers in the incident, in which police say two men ordered four employees of the jewelry store to lie on the floor and stole diamond rings and loose diamonds. No one was injured.
