Baltimore County Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects responsible for a series of robberies at a Royal Farm store in the 6000 block of Falls Road in Mount Washington.

Detectives have released surveillance videos from two of the crimes. Surveillance photos of the suspects entering the store are posted below.

July 14, 2013: Sometime between 5:25 a.m. and 5:32 a.m., a cashier was at the front counter when she was approached by two suspects. The first suspect displayed a black handgun and demanded money. The suspects fled the store with an undisclosed amount of currency.

October 20, 2013: At approximately 5:22 a.m., the suspects entered the store. The first suspect displayed a handgun and demanded to know the location of the safe. An employee opened the safe at which time the second suspect took money from it. The suspects then fled the store on foot towards the dumpster area of the parking lot.
