BALTIMORE, MD—A man from Baltimore has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for an armed robbery that took place in January 2020, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Maryland District.

The sentencing will also include three years of supervised release for Marvin Benjamin Sparrow, 32, of Baltimore.

According to his guilty plea, Sparrow was part of a group that planned and committed armed robberies of three businesses in Howard County, Anne Arundel County, and Baltimore County in January 2020. On January 22, 2020, Sparrow took part in the armed robbery of a T-Mobile store in Dundalk. During the robbery, a gun was used by a co-conspirator, and Sparrow and the co-conspirator stole cellphones and other electronic devices. The two were later apprehended and arrested by police.

The case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore Field Division, which is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, a program that brings together all levels of law enforcement and communities to reduce violent crime and gun violence. The program aims to make neighborhoods safer for everyone.
