CENTREVILLE, Md. - Four people were arrested for armed robbery and related charges, and a Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Deputy was injured following an incident that happened in Centreville, Md early Tuesday morning.

According to the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office, deputies were called to the Court Yard Inn on Rt. 213 near Chestertown just before 1 a.m. for a reported armed robbery involving a gun and knives. According to the investigation, three African-American men allegedly took prescription pain medications and a cell phone from the victims, then took off in a white Volkswagen. A short time later, the sheriff's office said a Queen Anne's Deputy saw a white Volkswagen going south on Rt 301 north of Centreville. 

Backup units were requested and a felony style stop was made, the sheriff's office said. With the possibility of a firearm in the suspect vehicle, Maryland State Police was called in as backup to help search for the suspects. 

Trooper First Class Kyle Morrison, a five-year-veteran of the Centreville State Police Barrack, and anorther trooper were in marked patrol cars traveling noth on Rt. 301, just south of Rt. 305, the sheriff's office said. In the meantime, deputies said they found the suspected vehicle traveling south on Rt. 301, so they began to shut down the highway in preparation of the stop.

Without warning, the sheriff's office said Trooper Morrison and the other trooper came upon the deputies closing the highway. Both troopers braked suddenly, but because of the wet roadway, deputies said Morrison swerved into the median to avoid hitting the patrol car in front of him, and hit Deputy Stephen Creason, who was walking in the area trying to close the road off. 

Deputy Creason was flown by a Maryland State Police helicopter to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he had surgery on a broken leg, the sheriff's office said. Troopers from the Centreville Barrack and the State Police Crash Team investigated the crash, assisted by deputies from the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office. 

The occupants in the Volkswagen, three African-American males and a white female, were taken into custody and the vehicle impounded, the sheriff's office said. 

The following people were arrested and charged:

Jalen Lynell Whyte (20) of Grasonville has been charged with Armed Robbery, Theft under $100, 1st Degree Assault, Reckless Endangerment, Conspiracy to commit Robbery and Conspiracy of Possession with intent to distribute CDS.

Devanon Arnet Wilson Jr. (21) of Chester has been charged with Armed Robbery, Theft under $100, 1st Degree Assault, Reckless Endangerment, Conspiracy to commit Robbery and Conspiracy of Possession with intent to distribute CDS.

Ty Lamar Blackwell (22) of Easton has been charged with Armed Robbery, Theft under $100, 1st Degree Assault, Reckless Endangerment, Conspiracy to commit Robbery and Conspiracy of Possession with intent to distribute CDS.

Sabrina Lynn Pulanco (20) of Grasonville has been charged with Conspiracy to commit Armed Robbery, Theft under $100, Assault and Conspiracy of Possession with intent to distribute CDS.

The Sheriff's Office said search warrants were issued for the vehicle, and the victim's home. Several knives were recovered from the Volkswagen, but no firearm was recovered, deputies said.

The robbery investigation is assigned to the Sheriff's Criminal Investigation Unit and is ongoing at this time.
