Detectives Investigate Gas Station Robbery in Silver Spring; Photos Released

For Immediate Release: Thursday, January 16, 2014

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police - Major Crimes Division have been investigating an armed robbery of a gas station that occurred in November 2013.

On November 14, at approximately 2:42 p.m., 3rd District officers responded to the Exxon gas station located at 8301 Fenton Street for a report of an armed robbery that had just occurred.  Investigation revealed that one suspect entered the gas station, looked around the store for a short time, and exited the store without purchasing anything.  A short time later, the suspect re-entered the store accompanied by two additional suspects.

The first suspect and the third suspect displayed handguns and demanded that the two gas station cashiers open the cash registers and the safe.  Two of the suspects then obtained money from the cash registers while the third suspect obtained cash from the safe.  All three suspects then exited the store and entered a white GMC vehicle.

Suspect one is described as a black male, 5'9" tall, and weighing approximately 175 pounds.  He was wearing a gray sweatsuit, black shoes, and a brown hat.  Suspect two is described as a black male, 5'9" tall, and weighing approximately 180 pounds.  He was wearing a gray hoodie, gray New Balance sneakers, a black mask, and black gloves.  He was also wearing a reflective neon green or yellow traffic vest over his clothing.  Suspect three is described as a black male, 5'9" tall, and weighing approximately 180 pounds.  He was wearing black or brown shoes with red laces, a black mask, and black gloves.  He was also wearing a reflective neon green or yellow traffic vest with an orange stripe over his clothing.

Today, detectives are releasing photos of the suspects and of the vehicle that the suspects entered when fleeing from the gas station.  Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects or the vehicle involved in this robbery is asked to call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477) or enter a tip online.
