GREENBELT, Md. — A 22-year-old Temple Hills man has been sentenced to 114 months in federal prison followed by five years of supervised release for robbing a Maryland coin laundry of $13 in a January holdup.

Juamal Samuel Carroll and a co-conspirator entered No Rulez Laundromat, Glenarden, Md., and pointed a loaded shotgun at an employee. They fled in a van after grabbing the money. The employee identified the van, and county police were able to locate it a short time later. Officers attempted to stop the van, but Carroll and his co-conspirator led authorities on a high-speed chase before being apprehended.

A 12-gauge shotgun loaded with two rounds of 12-gauge ammunition was seized from the vehicle.

“The danger of an armed robbery is not measured by how much money is stolen,” says U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein.
