He’s also accused of robbing a food delivery driver in the 700 block of Fallsgrove Drive on Feb. 18. Police earlier said a suspect flashed a gun, took cash and ran away.

Rockville City and Montgomery County police identified Harrison as the suspect in those cases, which occurred about a half-mile

Harrison was served a search warrant in the 700 block of Fallsgrove Drive, and authorities found several items that may be evidence, police said. He was arrested without incident.

Harrison is charged with armed robbery, robbery, firearm possession – prohibited person, use of a handgun in connection with a felony, second-degree assault and handgun on person.
