Police have arrested two men in connection with the armed robbery of a Germantown Walmart store, including a Rockville man who worked at the store.

Police arrested Alonzo Dee McBryde of the 13100 block of Turkey Branch Parkway in Rockville and DeJean Lamar Summerville, 30, of the 3900 block of Warner Avenue in Landover Hills, police said in a news release. The 32-year-old McBryde worked at the Walmart store at the time of the robbery.

Police allege that the 30-year-old Summerville, wearing a mask and gloves, entered the Walmart at 20910 Frederick Avenue before opening hours on February 11. He went to a store office where a 35-year-old female employee was preparing money to stock the cash registers.

The suspect put a gun to the woman’s head and told her to get on the floor. He stuffed cash into a bag and fled.

Police said it appeared that the person or people responsible had detailed knowledge of the store. McBryde worked at the store at the time of the robbery.

McBryde was arrested Nov. 7. Summerville was jailed at the Prince George's County Correctional Center on unrelated charges. McBryde and Summerville are being charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery. McBryde is currently being held on $200,000 bond at the Montgomery County Detention Center. Summerville remains in the custody of Prince George's County.
