Washington DC man arrested after false report of armed robbery in Dunkirk FR24 News English

On Tuesday, June 4, 2024, at approximately 10:30 a.m., the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a suspected armed robbery at the Safeway gas pumps located at 10276 Southern MD Blvd in Dunkirk.

The report was filed by Brian Arnell Hall, 35 of Washington, D.C., who claimed an unknown suspect approached him with a gun and demanded his wallet.
