Alleged Serial Robber Hits Two More Gloucester County Stores
The man who hit convenience stores in Camden and Gloucester counties went after a drug store and a doughnut shop Thursday night.
An alleged serial robber who has already hit convenience stores in West Deptford, Gloucester Township, Cherry Hill and and a bank in Washington Township allegedly attempted to rob two more convenience stores Thursday night, the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office announced Friday.
The two unsuccessful robberies occurred at the CVS in Glassboro and a Dunkin' Donuts in Washington Township.
Police said the robber, apparently dressed in a gray, hooded sweatshirt under a tan jacket, similar to what he wore in the other incidents, brandished a knife and demanded cash at both the CVS and Dunkin' Donuts, but fled without taking anything at either store.
His alleged robbery spree kicked off at the Church Street 7-Eleven in Blackwood Feb. 9.
After robbing the TD Bank on Route 42 in Washington Township Feb. 10, the police theory goes that the suspect robbed the 7-Eleven store on Evesham Road in Gloucester Township's Glendora section that same night before robbing a 7-Eleven store in Cherry Hill and the One Stop Shoppe on Red Bank Avenue in West Deptford around 10:15 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12.
Gloucester Township Police described the suspect as a white male who is between 30 and 40 years old, about 6 feet tall and between 170 and 190 pounds following Thursday's robbery in Blackwood. The man reportedly was wearing a dark gray sweatshirt, a baseball hat, dark pants and white sneakers when he robbed the Church Street 7-Eleven on Thursday night.
