Police have filed charges against a fourth teen accused of holding up several people at gunpoint last month in York City during a half-hour robbery spree.

Kyre Kareem Taylor, 16, of the first block of Spindrift Circle in Parkville, Maryland, faces four felony counts each of armed robbery and criminal conspiracy to commit that robbery. He had not been arraigned as of Sunday. 

Taylor and three other juveniles allegedly drove in a stolen car and used a stolen gun to rob four separate people at gunpoint in about 30 minutes, according to police.

The robberies happened while the victims were walking on the streets or getting into their vehicles in the early morning hours, according to charging documents. 

The teens went looking for people to rob about 4 a.m. April 19 at several locations in the downtown and eastern areas of York City, charging documents allege.

They surrounded and ambushed their victims with a gun, pointing the weapon at their head or chest, according to charging documents. 

William Calderon

York City Police first arrested 16-year-old William Calderon in the stolen car the morning of the robberies. Police earlier this month filled charges against Alexander Chamorro, 17, and Ethan Rosenboro, 15. All face charges of armed robbery.

The four juveniles were caught on camera at some point during the robbery spree, according to charging documents. Taylor was caught on a McDonald's surveillance camera in York City removing his face mask as he drank a frappe, charging documents say. 

Some of the stolen items, along with an illegally possessed  "ghost gun" were recovered, according to police.
