From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
Harford County Sheriff’s Office Detectives have arrested Mickey S. Tasker, 23, in connection to an armed robbery that occurred on Saturday, December 19, 2015.
At approximately 9:11 pm, patrol deputies from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Southern Precinct were called to the Walgreens in the 3000 block of Emmorton Road for the armed robbery of a person in the parking lot. Upon arrival, Patrol deputies learned the victim had just withdrawn cash from the ATM inside the store and was returning to her car when she was approached by the suspect who was armed with what appeared to be a handgun.
Tasker fled the area with an undisclosed amount of cash. The victim, uninjured, ran into the store to call 911.
Patrol deputies canvased the area, but were unable to locate the suspect who had fled the area. Detectives from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division and members of the Forensic Services Unit responded to the scene to assume the investigation. Through investigation, detectives were able to identify a suspect vehicle, which lead them to Tasker, who has no fixed address.
Deputies located Tasker in the 3100 block of White Oak Drive in Abingdon, and arrested him without incident on Sunday morning.
Tasker was charged with armed robbery, robbery, theft less than $100.00, firearm use in commission of a felony, first degree assault and second degree assault.
After his arrest, Tasker was transported to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division office, where he was questioned by detectives before being transported to the Harford County Detention Center. He is currently being held on $75,000 bail.
