Police recently seized over a dozen firearms and some drugs from a Maryland house in connection to an armed robbery at a hotel in Tysons.
Officers were called to the Residence Inn at 8400 Old Courthouse Road at 3:46 a.m. on Dec. 19 for the reported robbery, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.
“The suspects displayed a firearm and pistol whipped the victim before stealing money,” the FCPD said.
The resulting investigation identified a 33-year-old man from Maryland and a 26-year-old woman from Sterling as the suspects, police say.
It also led detectives to search a home in Prince George’s County where they found 13 firearms, three of them reported stolen, and four pounds of a substance believed to be meth. The Prince George’s County Police Department assisted with the search.
The man and woman were arrested by the FCPD’s Fugitive Track and Apprehension Squad. They’re both being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond and face charges of robbery and the use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
The woman has also been charged with crimes related to transporting and possessing drugs, including transportation of over an ounce of a Schedule I/II substance into Virginia, possession of a firearm with Schedule I/II narcotics, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a non-violent convicted felon, and possession with intent to distribute Schedule I/II narcotics.
