The Calvert Investigative Team is investigating a Jan. 29 robbery of the Shell gas station in Lusby.
At 9:24 p.m. Jan. 29, a cashier of the Shell gas station in Lusby called the police and said he had been robbed of money at knife point, according to a C.I.T. press release.
Calvert County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Sr. Trooper K. Greggs of the Maryland State Police Prince Frederick barrack responded to the scene and set up a perimeter, the press release states.
The victim said a white man with gray hair and a big nose, who was wearing jeans and a black bandana covering the lower half of his face, came inside the store. The man allegedly said, “Give me all your money,” and brandished a knife, police said.
The suspect followed the victim around the counter where the victim opened the cash register and handed the suspect about $200. The suspect then ran, heading south on H.G. Trueman Road, the press release states.
Surveillance video shows the suspect entering the store wearing what appeared to be a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head, jeans and a white bandana or hospital mask covering the lower part of his face.
The suspect walked south through a wooded area toward Jake and Al’s Restaurant, according to the press release. No suspect vehicle was identified.
The victim said the suspect was possibly in the store the previous day at about the same time. A K-9 track was conducted with negative results.
The robbery is being investigated by Greggs of C.I.T. Anyone with any information is asked to contact him at 410-535-1600, ext. 2598.
