NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – A suspect in the 2015 armed robbery of a 7-11 has been tracked down and arrested by U.S. Marshals.

Authorities say Demond White, a known gang member, robbed the store in the 2300 block of Sewells Point Road at gunpoint on October 5 around 3 a.m.

In July of 2016, warrants for robbery, conspiracy to commit a felony and use or display firearm in commission of a felony (three counts) were issued for the 29-year-old. After following up on multiple leads, Marshals determined that White had likely fled the Hampton Roads area.

Earlier this week, Marshals in Baltimore received a tip from Norfolk Marshals that White was in their area. Authorities were able to arrest White outside of a Motel 6 in the Linthicum Heights area. At first White provided a fake identity, but after Marshals fingerprinted him at the scene, his identity was confirmed.

White is being held at the Baltimore Central Booking Intake Center awaiting return to Norfolk.
