Regency Cab drivers targetedWednesday, Feb 1, 2012 | Updated 10:22 AM EST
Three suspects accused of using stun gun devices to rob taxi drivers have been arrested in Montgomery County.
Authorities identified the suspects as Jamel Lamar McInnis, age 18, of Clarksburg, Brandon Eugene Addison, age 21, of the 7500 block of Gaithersburg, and Kevin Olaniyi, age 20.
The first robbery occurred on January 10, at 1:15 a.m. in Clarksburg. A Regency Cab driver told police he had gone to pick up a fare on Brewer's Tavern Way. Investigators said a man got into the back of the cab, posing as a customer, but then stunned the driver using what authorities called a Taser-like device. The suspect escaped with cash, police said.
A second, similar incident occurred on January 15 in Rockville. Around 10:52 p.m., a different driver from the Regency Cab picked up two men from the Rockville Metro station and transported them to the 300 block of Lawrence Drive. When they arrived at the destination, the driver told News4 he was held down while one of the men shocked him with a stun gun. The two took his cash and fled, detectives said. The driver was later transported to the hospital with minor injuries.
Each suspect has been charged with one count each of robbery and assault.
