Harford County Sheriff's Office Investigates Two Armed Robberies
[April 6, 2013, Bel Air, MD] — On Saturday, April 06, 2013, Harford County Sheriff's Office deputies were investigating two separate armed robberies.
The first occurred at approximately 5:25 am at the 7-11 on the corner of Rt.7 and Abingdon Road, in Abingdon, MD. The suspect approached the cashier with a knife and demanded money and cigarettes. After receiving both, he fled on foot towards Rt.7. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 25-30 years of age, 6'00 and weighing 175-180 lbs. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, jeans, thick prescription style black glasses, and was covering his face with a piece of navy blue sweatshirt material. No injuries were reported.
Later in the day, an attempted robbery occurred at approximately 3:06 pm, when a white male wearing a black ski mask entered the Darlington Pharmacy, at 1115 Main Street in Darlington, MD. He displayed a knife and demanded prescription narcotics. After the pharmacist stated twice that they did not have any, the suspect left the building. The suspect is described as a white male, 5'10", wearing blue jeans and a dark jacket covering multiple sweatshirts. The Sheriff's Office has reason to believe that the suspect may have been working with an accomplice who was seen outside the pharmacy during the robbery. This person of interest is described as a white male, approximately 5'9", slim build, approximately 20 years old, with a short beard, long hair, long pants, and a black hooded sweatshirt. Both were last seen headed towards the Main Street Post Office. No injuries were reported.
