    Two gunmen accused of staking out parties in Charles County, Md., and robbing the guests are now in custody, authorities said.

    According to the sheriff's office, on four occasions in August, the men found out about parties - usually by word of mouth or through social media - and hid in their car as they watched guests. Once they saw someone wearing expensive clothes, the robbers, armed with a shotgun, allegedly took the victims' clothing, shoes, wallets, jewelry and cell phones.

    Detectives said the stolen items and the weapons used in the robberies were recovered during the execution of a search warrant.

    Terrance Andrew Dyson, Jr., 21, and Deandre Tavon Thompson, 18, both of Pomfret, are charged with multiple counts of armed robbery . They are being held at the Charles County Detention Center.

    At least one other person was involved, News4's Pat Collins reported.

    Anyone with information that can assist authorities in their investigation should call Sgt. T. Miner at 301-609-6481.
