Grand jury indicts robbery suspects

Sandra Degrange

CUMBERLAND — A 54-year-old Frederick woman was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery in the December 2017 hold-up of a city convenience store.

Sandra DeGrange was sentenced Thursday in Allegany County Circuit Court by Judge Jeffrey Getty. Five years of the sentence was suspended.

According to court documents, two local convenience stores were robbed during the early morning hours of Dec. 29, 2017.

Investigators determined DeGrange had conspired with Christopher Platter to rob the 7-Eleven store on Maryland Avenue. Platter entered the store displaying a toy gun, robbed the clerk, then exited the store where he entered a vehicle driven by DeGrange and fled the area.

Platter was previously convicted in the robberies and is serving a 15-year sentence in the Maryland Department of Corrections.

The case was investigated by the C3I Unit and the Cumberland Police Department. Assistant State's Attorney Erich Bean prosecuted the case. DeGrange was represented by attorney Kelly Clark.
