MILLERSVILLE, Md. (WJZ)– Anne Arundel County police need your help to find a man who robbed an armored car employee in Millersville.
Rochelle Ritchie has details of the heist inside a convenience store.
Anne Arundel County police say this crime is unusual and rare for this area. They are on the look out for a suspect after he robbed a Loomis Armored employee while he was putting money inside the ATM at the 7-Eleven store on Old Mill Road.
“This sort of robbery dealing with an armored car employee is rare for our jurisdiction. We haven’t seen anything similar in nature in a few years,” Justin Mulcahy, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department, said.
Nearby residents are shaken by the robbery.
“We’re not safe anymore,” one resident said.
Crime scene tape still decorates the outside of the store.
It was just before the busy noon hour when the man wearing blue jeans, a baseball cap and a black t-shirt as he casually walked into the 7-Eleven. Nothing about him was suspicious.
“An employee from Loomis Armored car was inside of the 7-Eleven and servicing that ATM when he was accosted from behind by the male suspect who implied he had a weapon,” Mulcahy said.
The suspect ran out of the store with the money and took off in a gray car.
Customers are hoping the suspect is caught quickly and say that with the available clear pictures from the surveillance camera, it shouldn’t be long before he is behind bars.
“He didn’t even have anything over his face. It was a perfectly clear picture of the guy,” Susan Caroots, a resident of the area, said.
Though the suspect implied he had a weapon, he never showed one.
