PERRY HALL, Md. — Baltimore County Police has arrested and charged a man involved in a robbery at Perry Hall High School last year.

Back in November 2019, 18-year-old Cameron Jamal Thomas was with another suspect when they approached a group of teens at Perry Hall High School, trying to join a game.

Thomas told the group that he had a gun, then stole a watch and cell phone from one of the teens. The unidentified person with him, pushed a teen to the ground and stole that person's cell phone.

Police said Thomas was involved in another robbery, this time on January 28. He ran behind a teen who was walking on Ebenezer Road after leaving Perry Hall High School and took the person's cell phone.

During an investigation of the two incidents, detectives linked Thomas to a third robbery back in November.

This time, on Ebenezer Road, he put his arms around a girl and told her that he was carrying a gun. That's when he took her cell phone out of her pocket and ran.

According to the department, Thomas was arrested on March 2 on a warrant after detectives from the White Marsh Precinct Investigative Services Unit identified him as the suspect involved in the robberies.

He is charged with with multiple counts of robbery, assault and theft and is held in the Baltimore County Detention Center on denied bail status following a bail review hearing on Tuesday.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the incident at Perry Hall High School in an effort to identify the second suspect involved. Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives at the White Marsh Precinct by calling 410-887-5040.
