Two men have been indicted by federal prosecutors for allegedly robbing at least three Baltimore area convenience stores with a shotgun.
Prosecutors say Quindell Ryeshawn Gardner, 21, and Dion Mitchell Doram, 22, conspired between May and July to commit a series of robberies using stolen cars, with one acting as the getaway driver.
On June 21, police say the pair traveled in a stolen vehicle to Hampden, where Doram entered the Royal Farms store in the 1100 block of W. 41st St., brandished a shotgun and demanded cash and cartons of cigarettes.

Both men were first charged in Towson District Court, after being picked up on armed robbery charges on July 4. Court records show that police recovered a 12 caliber shotgun.
Court records show Doram is a registered sex offender, who received a suspended 10-year sentence on third-degree sex offense charges in May 2011. He's been charged with violating his probation four times since then. Gardner, meanwhile, has a prior conviction for armed robbery in Baltimore County, and received 80 days time served.
