Prince Frederick, MD – An alleged armed robbery, reported in October, has led to the indictments of a Calvert County couple. The indictments against the suspects—identified as Gabrielle Makenzee Wilson, 20 of St. Leonard; and Diamante Jevaughn Ray, 23 of Lusby—were handed down in Calvert County Circuit Court on Nov. 21.

Wilson was indicted on eight counts, including armed robbery, robbery, first-degree assault and theft $1,000 to under $10,000, all felony charges. Ray was indicted on seven counts, including the four felony charges Wilson is facing. Both defendants were indicted for possessing over 10 grams of marijuana.

According to a statement of probable cause on file in District Court, shortly after 10 p.m. on Oct. 18, Calvert authorities received a call from a man who said he had just been robbed by a couple. He identified the female perpetrator as “Gabby Macon.” The victim gave police a description of the vehicle, which was traveling in the Owings area. The vehicle was stopped by police at Route 260 and St. Andrews Drive. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a quantity of marijuana and two pistols.

“Ms. Wilson immediately stated that they had robbed the victim because he had robbed her previously,” Detective Hawkins stated in the court documents. Wilson subsequently waived her Miranda rights. She told Hawkins she knew the victim and claimed he did not give her “the amount of CDS [controlled dangerous substance] she paid for. She and her current significant-other, Diamante Ray, drove to St. Mary’s County and were given handguns by an unknown black male. At approximately 7 p.m. the victim contacted her via ‘Snap Chat.’ The victim and suspects agreed to meet near the victim’s house on Harvey Road in Huntingtown.”

According to court documents, Wilson told police she got into the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle and as he was weighing the marijuana “she displays a gun and points it at the suspect. He pushes the gun away, she grabs the bag of marijuana, exits his vehicle and reenters the vehicle still occupied by Mr. Ray. They flee the scene north on Route 4 to Route 2, to Mount Harmony Lane then Mount Harmony Road towards Route 260 where they were stopped by police.”

Ray was later transported to the sheriff’s office and advised of his Miranda rights, which he refused to waive. Hawkins noted in the court documents that Wilson was 19-years old at the time of the incident, and unable to legally possess a firearm. “Ray does not possess a permit to carry a firearm,” Hawkins stated.

Both Wilson and Ray remain incarcerated at the Calvert County Detention Center. Status conferences on the state’s case against the pair are tentatively scheduled for Dec. 23 in circuit court.
