Armed Robbery of Game Stop in Bel Air

(Bel Air MD, November 7, 2010) On Saturday, November 6, 2010 at approximately 9:20pm, Harford County Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies responded to a 911 call regarding an armed robbery in progress at the Game Stop Store located at the Festival at Bel Air - 5 Bel Air South Parkway, Bel Air MD.

As the store was closing for the evening, the suspects, armed with black semi automatic handguns, entered the store stealing cash from the register, several X-Box game systems and portable game systems. In addition, they stole an assortment of new release video games, including the video game, “Call of Duty–Black Ops”, which is not scheduled for release for sale until November 9, 2010.

While the robbery was in progress, two customers approached the front door of the store. They were originally told by one of the robbers that the store was closed, but one of the suspects then let the customers in to the store, ushering them at gunpoint into the store’s back storage area. Neither employees nor customers were physically injured during the robbery.

Detectives believe that there are at least two suspects involved in this armed robbery and may be the same individuals who committed the armed robbery of the Game Stop in Aberdeen on October 21, 2010.
