PGPD Announces Arrest in Armed Bank Robbery in District Heights

Prince George’s County, Maryland…The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Robbery Unit has arrested 39 year-old Jalmalda Durrell Redish in connection with an armed bank robbery in District Heights, Maryland.

Redish was developed as a suspect in the robbery of a Wachovia Bank and a warrant was obtained for his arrest.  On June 17, 2011 Redish, of the 6500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in District Heights, was arrested and is being charged with armed robbery.  He has been remanded to the Department of Corrections.

On June 13, 2011 at approximately 4:05 p.m., patrol officers responded to the Wachovia Bank, located in the 5800 block of Silver Hill Road, for a call of a robbery.  When patrol officers arrived, they discovered that a suspect had entered the bank, implied a handgun, and demanded money.  The tellers, fearing for their safety, complied with the suspect, who then took the money and fled the bank on foot.  Patrol officers conducted a canvass of the area for the suspect which was unsuccessful.
