Between February 11 and February 18, 2018, three Subway restaurants in Charles County were robbed by a masked gunman. On February 18, Pfc. J. Foster observed the suspect vehicle described in the robberies and conducted a traffic stop. The sole occupant of the vehicle was taken into custody.

A search warrant was obtained for the vehicle and evidence from the robberies was recovered. Otis Scorpio Williams, 33, of Lexington Park, MD, was arrested and charged with three counts each of armed robbery, robbery, first degree assault, and theft.

At this point, Williams has only been charged in connection with the Charles County cases; however, he is suspected in a total of nine armed robberies of Subway restaurants in the Southern Maryland region and in King George, Virginia. Detective R. Johnson investigated.
