6 Visitors From Birmingham Arrested

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office arrested six men from Birmingham, Alabama yesterday in connection to an armed robbery. Two were juveniles, four were adults.

The BCSO responded to Clarence Street on Panama City Beach yesterday at about 11 am in response to a 911 call reporting an armed robbery. The victim told deputies two black males approached her, one wearing a white hoodie, and robbed her at gunpoint, taking her purse.

Darius JenkinsThe deputy went to a nearby motel, the Executive Inn on Front Beach Road, and made contact with management to review security video. He suspected there was a possibility the men responsible for the robbery may have come from the Executive Inn or ran to it after committing the robbery.

On the video, the deputy saw two black males, one short and one tall, running from the area of Clarence and Moylan back to the Executive Inn; one was wearing a white hoodie. Both men ran into room #111. The front desk clerk told deputies that men in that room were Dewayne McGlown and Ke’umbre Waugh, both from Birmingham, and they had just checked out. The clerk also showed deputies a check that had been recovered from the room after the men checked out. It had the victim’s name on it.

Dewayne McGlowanThe information on the suspects and a description of their vehicle was sent out to local law enforcement. A BCSO deputy spotted the vehicle on Front Beach Road. Three BCSO vehicles surrounded the suspect’s vehicle before one turned on their lights to conduct a traffic stop. The coordinated effort led to the apprehension of six men within the vehicle without incident. The gun believed used in the robbery was located in the vehicle.

Subsequent investigation revealed that of the six suspects, two had been involved in the robbery. Ke’Umbre Kendrell, age 17, is believed to have held the gun and demanded the victim’s purse. He was charged withArmed Robbery with a Firearm. Cameron Morris, age 18, is believed to have been with Waugh when the robbery occurred, and was charged with Principal to Armed Robbery with a Firearm.

Michael CooperBCSO Criminal Investigations learned that when Waugh and Morris took the purse they ran back to the Executive Inn and into their room where Martavius Chandler, age 16,Michael Maurice Cooper, age 18, Dewayne McGlown, age 21, and Darrius Jenkins, age 18, were waiting. Investigators believe all four men waiting in the room knew there had been an armed robbery and that the purse belonged to the victim. The contents to the purse were dumped out and all the men went through the items to see what they wanted to keep. All four men have been charged with Accessory After the Fact Armed Robbery.

The victim’s purse was found under a bed in the motel room.
