Police carPolice today announced the arrest of 22-year-old Rondell McLeoud for his part in an armed robbery of the T-Mobile store on the H Street corridor.

The hold-up occurred on Jan. 20 about 12:45 p.m. Police believe that McLeoud and one other person entered the T-Mobile store, displayed handguns and stole money and phones. McLeoud is also suspected of another hold-up of a business on the 3200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE, east of the river.

Police also charged 25-year-old Bryan Jones of Hyattsville, Md. with three robberies in Southwest.

Jones was arrested on Feb. 1 after witnesses to a robbery stopped him and held him until police arrived. At the time, police announced that they believed Jones was connected to two other robberies in the area.

Today, police announced charges in the two other robberies. The first happened on Jan. 7 on the 400 block of M Street SW. Jones allegedly hit an elderly woman on the back of the head and stole her purse. Seven days later, Jones allegedly robbed another woman on the 1300 block of 4th Street SW.

    Nice job indeed, DCMPD.

    However, and unfortunately, due to DC’s incredibly light-on-crime criminal justice system (remember, these poor and sad gentlemen are underprivileged victims! life is hard! and society is cruel!), these thugs probably will get nothing more than a few months in a halfway house, and then they’ll be out robbing, mugging, and beating people up again.

    Witnesses hold them until cops arrive? Good thing we have the witnesses around to do the cops job. Cops spend too much time looking for hookers and other petty crimes and not enough time on the streets looking for these serious criminals.
