On August 4, 2018, the driver of a private ride sharing company reported to the Maryland State Police Annapolis Barrack that she was the victim of an armed robbery. The victim told police that Azaharez-Mena, who at the time of the incident identified himself as Samuel Mena, requested a ride from Severna Park, Md. to Lanham, Md. During the trip, Azaharez-Mena allegedly brandished a handgun and took money from the victim. Further investigation by Annapolis Barrack Troopers revealed evidence that identified Azaharez-Mena as the suspect. Azaharez-Mena was taken before the Anne Arundel District Court Commissioner’s Office and is being held without bond at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center.
