OCCURRED: 01/27/2007, 2:20 a.m.
LOCATION: Gambling House in Nearby Residential Neighborhood
PGCPD CASE #: 07-027-0193
On 01/27/2007, at approximately 2:20 a.m., two suspects entered a
house in a nearby residential neighborhood, displayed handguns, and
announced a robbery. The house was occupied by approximately fifteen
individuals including some University of Maryland students. The
suspects took cash, cell phones and the victims’ pants.
Reportedly, the house was recently purchased and appeared to
have been converted into a gambling house. The basement was furnished
with three professional gambling tables, flat screen TVs, a cash room,
and a bar. Most of the victims were patrons of the gambling house.
Some victims/patrons may have left prior to the arrival of police.
What a great idea. Up until the getting robbed part, anyway. Why take a bus to Atlantic City when you can have it all in the basement? I hope they took lemons and made lemonade by having a no-pants party after the robbers left.
