Suspect in Custody for Residential Robbery in Lanham

Augustine Koroma 

The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Robbery Unit identified and charged the suspect wanted in connection with a residential robbery at an apartment in Lanham. The suspect is 22-year-old Augustine Koroma of Lanham.

Koroma is charged with a residential robbery at a home in the 9900 block of Good Luck Road which occurred on April 8, 2024. In that case, the suspect broke into the victims’ apartment at approximately 5:00 am. Once inside, he implied he had a gun and demanded the victims’ property. In fear for their lives, they complied. He then fled the home.

Through various investigative techniques, Robbery Unit detectives identified Koroma. The Fugitive Unit located and arrested him late Monday night on an unrelated warrant for second degree assault. Detectives obtained a search warrant for Koroma’s residence. Items of evidence connected to the residential robbery on April 8, 2024, were located inside.

Investigators believe two additional residential robberies and a breaking and entering at three apartment complexes on Good Luck Road between April 4-8 are connected. Additional charges against Koroma are expected.

Here are the three additional cases preliminarily believed connected:  

* Residential armed robbery: 9800 Good Luck Road - 04/07/2024 at 5:50 am

* Residential armed robbery (attempt): 9800 Good Luck Road - 04/06/2024 at 6:55 am

* Breaking & entering: 9800 Good Luck Road - 04/04/2024 at 9:00 am

On Monday, investigators released surveillance video of the attempted residential robbery that occurred on April 6, 2024, at an apartment in the 9800 block of Good Luck Road.

The preliminary investigation revealed that in each of these cases, the suspect appears to have entered the residences through an unlocked window or door. No residents were injured in any of those cases.
