Montgomery County police have arrested an 18-year-old in connection with this weekend's robbery of multiple guests at a hotel in Silver Spring.

Investigators say Jackson Julius robbed eight guests at gunpoint with a sawed-off shotgun during a party in a room at the Homewood Suites Hotel early Saturday morning. Investigators say Julius simply knocked on the door of the room in the hotel located in the 8700 of Colesville Road. The host, who reportedly sent invitations by text message, opened the door for Julius thinking he was an invited guest.

Later police traced Julius to a RideOn bus where he was found carrying a duffel bag containing the stolen items and the shotgun. Julius is charged with multiple counts of armed robbery. He's being held on $150,000 bond.
