On April 14, 2014 Detectives with the Frederick Police Department made a 6th arrest in the January 2014 armed robbery and kidnapping which occurred in the area of E 16th Street and N. East Street Frederick MD.

On March 4, 2014 the Frederick County Maryland Grand Jury returned an indictment charging Mera Nichole Fraley in regards to her involvement in the January robbery case. Fraley was arrested in Washington DC over the weekend and was held as a fugitive from Maryland pending an extradition hearing in Washington DC.

Subsequent to the extradition hearing detectives with the Criminal Investigation Division of the Frederick Police Department took custody of Fraley Monday evening and transported Fraley back to Frederick County Maryland. Fraley was transported to the Frederick County Adult Detention Center where she was being held pending an initial appearance.
