Baltimore County Police are looking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect wanted for an attempted robbery at a Royal Farms store and thefts from two other Royal Farms stores. 

On March 8, the suspect entered a Royal Farms Store in the 7200 block of York Road 21212, approached the counter with items to purchase, and asked for four cartons of Newport cigarettes.  He leaned over the counter towards the clerk and said, “I need you to kick it out”.  The suspect ran out the door and got into a silver minivan after a customer yelled at him. 

On March 15, the suspect entered a Royal Farms Store on 1500 block of East Joppa Road 21286, approached the counter, and asked the clerk for six cartons of Newport cigarettes.  When the clerk asked the suspect for identification he advised he didn’t have any and walked out of the store.  The clerk walked away from the register and the suspect ran behind the counter grabbing the 6 cartons of cigarettes. 

On April 27, the suspect entered the Royal Farms Store in the 6000 block of Falls Road 21209. He approached the counter with items to purchase and asked the clerk for four cartons of Newport cigarettes.  As the clerk walked away to retrieve cigars, the suspect reached over the counter and grabbed the cigarettes.  

These incidents are under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Robbery Unit.
